The Union home ministry on Friday evening amended the new domicile rule for Jammu and Kashmir issued this week that had received a lot of flak in the Kashmir valley. In its final form, only domiciled residents of J&K will be eligible to apply for recruitment in the union territory. People from outside the union territory, who have been residents of the UT for 15 years, will be treated as domicile residents.
