Jammu and Kashmir is no longer a state and as of midnight on Wednesday, is two union territories - Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. Following the birth of two union territories nearly three months after the central government scrapped Jammu and Kashmir's decades-old special status under Article 370, President's rule imposed in undivided Jammu and Kashmir in June 2018 has been revoked, according to a government notification. The Home Ministry, in a notification on Wednesday, replaced the state of Jammu and Kashmir with the "union territory of Jammu and Kashmir" and announced omission of "permanent residents or hereditary state subjects". In the late night notification, the ministry's Jammu and Kashmir division announced a slew of measures, including application of central laws. "... there are references in the state laws that have been applied to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, and the Union Territory of Ladakh to the expressions 'permanent residents' or 'hereditary state subjects'..., wherever they occur, shall be omitted," it said.
