Centre amends land laws in Jammu & Kashmir: Indian citizens outside J&K now permitted to buy land in the Union Territory

Effectively, non-residents are also now eligible to buy land in Jammu and Kashmir, subject to certain conditions.

Powers under Section 96 of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act, 2019 have been invoked by the Centre to notify amendments to the Jammu and Kashmir Land Revenue Act 1996, the Jammu and Kashmir Agrarian Reforms Act, 1976 and theJammu and Kashmir Development Act, 1970. 

The order that has introduced these changes has been termed the 
Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization (Adaptation of Central Laws) Third Order, 2020.
