The Jammu and Kashmir Local Bodies Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2024, is a legislative measure introduced and passed in the Lok Sabha on February 5 and 6, 2024, respectively. The bill aims to amend existing local body laws in Jammu and Kashmir, specifically the Jammu and Kashmir Panchayati Raj Act of 1989, the Jammu and Kashmir Municipal Act of 2000, and the Jammu and Kashmir Municipal Corporation Act of 2000. The primary objective of this amendment is to provide reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in Panchayats and Urban Local Bodies in the region. This move is seen as an essential step towards ensuring justice for OBC citizens and aligning local body laws with the provisions of Parts IX and IXA of the Indian Constitution. The bill was introduced by Union Minister of State Nityanand Rai on behalf of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The significance of this bill lies in addressing previous constitutional impediments that had delayed local body polls in Jammu and Kashmir. The way forward includes the effective implementation of these reservation provisions and the conduct of local body elections.
