Article 35A


The Article 35A of our Indian constitution is related with Jammu And Kashmir .
The Article 35A gives powers to the State Legislature to define permanent residents of the state and their privileges in public sector jobs, acquisition of property in the state ,scholarships and other public aids and welfare.
The Article also declares that any act of legislature coming under Article cannot be challenged for violating provisions of of the constitution or any other law of the land. Article 35A was added to the constitution through a presedential order. In 1954 , on the advice of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru led cabinet President Dr. Rajendra Prasad passed the order.The constitution (Application to Jammu & Kashmir )Order , 1954- in accordance with the Article 370 of the constitution.

Controversy :

An NGO named "we the citizens " first filed a petition to strike down Article 35A and challenging the constitutional validity of both Article 35A and Article 370. It argued that Article 35A was against the "spirit of oneness of India" because it created a class within a class of Indian citizens.
Another plea was filed by Jammu & Kashmir resident Charu Wali Khanna who petitioned against the Article which protect certain provisions of the Jammu & Kashmir Legislation. These provisions mainly dent the right to property to Kashmiri women who marry a man outside the state. The women lose their property in the state which is applicable to her sons as well.

It said that the intensity of Parliament to make laws in J&K will be constrained to those issues in the Union List and the Concurrent List which, in discussion with the State government, are announced by the President to relate to issue.It is necessary to encourage confidence to the residents of J&K that any changes made in the Article  won't exclude their rights in J&k and can boost J&K’s prosperity because it can open the doors for additional investment, leading to the new opportunities.Article 35A, that was incorporated regarding six decades needs a sharp relook because now it has become the  well established democratic State.If Article 35A is to be removed, it should be removed by  Associating with the different J&K leaders , by taking opinions  with the through a political method which has the folks of Jammu and Kashmir within the discussion.
