In an embarrassment for the Centre, over 50 errors found in J&K Reorganisation Bill

The Government latest notification has also deleted a sentence which said that a delimitation exercise will be carried out for parliamentary constituencies


New Delhi– The Centre has reportedly issued a notification to correct some glaring mistakes in the Jammu and Kashmir reorganisation Bill which was introduced in the parliament on 5th of August and passed on the 7th of August in Rajya sabha. As per the legislation, Jammu and Kashmir has been divided into two Union territories Ladhak and Jammu and Kashmir.

The incident has left embarrassment for the government as corrections came after 35 days. There were a total of 52 errors in the legislations, ranging from silly spelling mistakes to grammatical errors.

For instance, in the legislation, “administrators” have been spelt as “Adminstrators” while “article” became “article”.

It’s not over.

“Territories” be “Tterritories”, “Shariat” became “Shariet” and “Safai Karamcharis” became “SafaiKaramcharis”.

“Figures” became “figure”, “Publish” became “Published” and “entry 2” became “entry 4”.

It mentioned “State of Jammu and Kashmir” instead of “Union the territory of Jammu and Kashmir” Institutions Act, “2004” became Institute Act “2005” and “1909” became “1951”.

The government has issued a three-page notification with correction of all the errors in the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act.

Some of the opposition parties said that law was brought in hastily and criticized the government for its move.

Before corrections were notified, it even mentioned that there will be delimitation of the parliamentary constituencies of Jammu and Kashmir. However, the sentence has been omitted now.

The Act was introduced by the Modi-led Central Government to divide Jammu Kashmir into Union territory that is Jammu and Kashmir and Ladhak both of which will come into existence on the 31st of October.
