The amendment made by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha in Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Rules 2005 on 19 Oct.2022, for the inclusion of pahari ethnic group in the list of tribes getting benefits under schedule tribe reservation is a historic initiative.
Undoubtedly,this step is going to open the gates of big universities , colleges and other educational institutions for people of pahari ethnic group. This step is going to accomplish all those dreams of becoming high Govt. Officials, which the pahari people had been expecting for three decades . This amendment is going to raise the miserable living standard of Pahari people and all, is going to confer to pahari’s their basic and fundamental right of becoming a part of State Assembly or Parliament.
