SRINAGAR: The Government of India Tuesday said after the abrogation of Article 370  as many as 34 people from outside Jammu and Kashmir have bought properties in the Union Territory.

The Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and also barred people from outside to acquire properties, was abrogated on August 5, 2019 and the erstwhile state was bifurcated into two Union Territories Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Replying to a question, Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai in Lok Sabha said, “As per the information provided by the government of Jammu and Kashmir, 34 people from outside the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir have bought properties in the UT of J&K after the abrogation of Article 370,”.
