- Residents of Jammu and Kashmir enjoyed dual citizenship, which they would lose only if they married people from other states. There will be no dual citizenship from now.
- There will be no separate flag for Jammu and Kashmir. It will come under the national tricolor flag.
- Article 360, which allows the centre to declare financial emergency in any state, will apply to Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier, the move would require "war or an external act of aggression".
- There can be reservation for minorities in the state now.
- Earlier, the Right to Information (RTI) Act was not applicable to Jammu and Kashmir. That has changed.
