No person from outside Jammu and Kashmir has purchased land in the UT so far, according to information provided by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to a parliamentary panel, The Hindu reported.

Last year in October, the ministry had notified new land laws for the Union Territory, making it possible for any Indian citizen to buy land in the region. The land in Jammu and Kashmir was earlier meant only for the permanent residents under Article 370, which was abrogated by the Centre on 5 August, 2019.

In its report to the panel, the home ministry said that agricultural land was being protected in Jammu and Kashmir on similar lines as that in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. It, however, said that the land has been opened up for industries in the latter two states.
