The team will be headed by party leader and general secretary Ram Madhav.
Earlier, former chief minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed whose party, PDP, got most number of seats in recent election confirmed that party is in touch with BJP.
"Track two talks with the BJP over government formation are in progress. We may differ in our vision and priorities but an attempt is being made to find a common ground to evolve consensus on all issues to carry forward the peace process and political and economic agenda", PDP patron Sayeed had said.
The results of the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir on December 23 threw up a hung assembly with PDP emerging as the single largest party bagging 28 seats in the 87-member house. BJP came close second with 25 seats while National Conference bagged 15 seats followed by Congress with 12 seats and others winning seven seats.
