Seven independent state commissions including State Human Rights Commission abolished in Jammu and Kashmir

The jurisdiction of the respective national bodies will extend to the two union territories.

Almost three months after the Article 370 was abolished which had granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, the government has abolished Jammu and Kashmir State Human Rights Commission, and six other commissions functioning in the state. The decision comes ahead of 31st October when the states will be converted into two union territories, Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.

Apart from the independent state human rights commission, State Information Commission (SIC), State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (SCDRC), State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC), State Commission for Protection of Women and Child Rights (SCPWCR), State Commission for Persons with Disabilities (SCPwD), and State Accountability Commission (SAC) will cease to exist from 31st October. After that, the jurisdiction of the respective national bodies will extend to the two union territories.

An order issued by the General administrative Department of Jammu and Kashmir said, “Consequent upon repeal of the acts related to these commissions by the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, sanction is hereby accorded to the winding up of these commissions, with effect from October 31, 2019,”

Terms of chairpersons, presidents and members of the commissions will end on October 31st. And the employees of the commissions will report to respective administrative departments after October 31.

The order states that the records of state human commission will be transferred to the Department of Law, Justice Parliamentary Affairs.
