Jammu Kashmir
Srinagar, Oct 15: The allotment of 4,200 two-room flats for Kashmiri Pandit migrants at Jagti in Jammu district will start from Dec 2010, officials said on Friday, Oct 15.

The flats, constructed under the Prime Minister's Rehabilitation Plan, will likely start in Dec 2010, and the verification process will be completed by mid-Nov.

Jammu Kashmir government has constructed two-room flats at Jagti in Nagrota area of Jammu for those Kashmiri Pandit migrants who are living in one-room dwellings provided to them.

"As per the present policy, migrants who have shifted to their own houses shall not qualify for allotment of two-room tenements as these are meant only for those families who do not own any residential accommodation in Jammu," they said.

First preference will be given to Kashmiri Pandit migrant families living in camps and one-room tenements, later the state government will frame a separate policy to allot the left over flats to those migrant families living in rented accommodation.
