Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has asserted that there is no move to effect any change in the act governing the permanent resident certificate (PRC) in the state. Mr Malik said that it is an integral part of the legal structure of Jammu and Kashmir and there is no attempt whatsoever to tamper with this law. 

The governor clarified that the state government is seeking comments from people for hassle-free issuance of the certificates to the genuine residents, as many applicants face avoidable difficulties in getting a PRC within the stipulated timeframe due to a variety of procedural reasons.

Mr Malik said, this is a routine administrative matter and unnecessary meaning should not be attached to it. Article 35A of the Constitution empowers the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly to define ‘permanent residents’ of the state who are eligible for special rights and privileges, which the legislature can provide.
