Explained | How Kashmir's Special Status and Article 370 are being changed

The Union Home Minister Amit Shah introduced two statutory resolutions in the Rajya Sabha on August 1, 2019. The first was to recommend that the President Ram Nath Kovind issue a notification rendering Article 370 inoperative. The second was to accept the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill.

According to Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir had its own Constitution, and all laws passed by Parliament will not be applicable to the State, unless the State government gives its concurrence.
