JAMMU, Aug 19: A delegation of SOS International, a prominent organization of PoJK Displaced Persons, met TK Bhat Relief Commissioner (Migrants) and Davinder Singh Bhau, Director, Relief Commissioner Organization (Migrants), here today and apprised them of the difficulties being faced by the DP families settled outside Jammu and Kashmir, in getting themselves registered for Domicile certificate.

He explained that there was no clarity with regard to Column 12 and Column 13 in the Registration application forms, which are meant for Permanent Address and Present Address, respectively, thus confusing the applicants. “Since these Displaced families are presently settled outside J&K, their present address is ought to be in other parts of the country but the concerned officials are rejecting their applications on the basis of their being outsiders,” he explained.
The Relief Commissioner admitted that the applications were rejected because of confusion and he agreed in principal to rectify the mistake. He informed that a notice clarifying the same would be uploaded as annexure to the registration form so that no more confusion remains. He further said that in column 12 the applicants are required to mention their permanent address of PoJK while in column 13 their present address as per Aadhar Card is to be mentioned.
Rajiv Chuni also apprised the Relief Commissioner that application forms of those DPs were also being rejected, who have submitted their PRC as proof of their being resident of J&K, in addition to other valid documents. He also drew attention of the Relief Commissioner towards the rejection of applications of those DPs who have submitted self attested copies of their registration with PRO.
