Two important laws related to Jammu and Kashmir were passed in the budget session of Parliament. The Lok Sabha on Tuesday passed a bill to amend the list of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in Jammu and Kashmir. Following the passage of the Constitution (Scheduled Castes) (Amendment) Bill, 2024, the Valmiki community will now be included in the Scheduled Castes list. Instead of Chura, Valmiki, Bhangi and Mehtar communities it will be written as Valmiki community. When the bill becomes law, a large number of locals will benefit.
