Kashmiri women to get Permanent Resident status

The Milli Gazette Online

Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to comply with the order of state High Court verdict of October 7, 2002 which gave women equal rights. It restored the right of Permanent Resident Status (PRS) of women married to persons outside the state. 

A full bench comprising Justice VK Jhanji, Justice TS Doabla and Justice Muzaffar Jan had objected to "Valid till Marriage" certificates given to women saying that it violated women’s fundamental rights given to them under the Constitution and that it discriminated on the basis of sex. The fresh Permanent Resident certificates would be the same for both genders.

The state government initially did not implement the court’s order and decided to challenge it in the apex court by filing a petition. But some weeks later it withdrew the petition. 

Before the J&K High Court’s order the women were being issued a Permanent Resident status with a provision of "Valid till Marriage". After marriage women had to reapply for PRS certificates. The women groups of the state had termed it blatantly discriminatory 

In J&K besides Indian citizenship, a PRS is given to people whose ancestors lived in the state for at least 10 years before May 14, 1954. Only those with a PRS can buy property, get employment and are entitled to other privileges. «
