Map of India Depicting States and Union Territories after Bifurcation of the Erstwhile State of Jammu & Kashmir (Proposed)

After the creation of Telangana, the 29th state of India, which was carved out from the state of Andhra Pradesh on June 2, 2014, the Indian Political Map is set to change yet again.

On August 5, 2019, the Government of India introduced the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019 in the Rajya Sabha that bifurcates the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories – the UT of Jammu and Kashmir and the UT of Ladakh. With both the houses of parliament giving their assent to the bill, the number of states in the Republic of India will decline to 28, while the number of Union Territories will increase to 9 on October 31, 2019.

While Government of India has declared that these changes are “at once”, we are using the word “proposed” for the new maps depicting the two new Union Territories after the reorganisation. Meanwhile, we are awaiting changes on Government’s own websites and official notification in this regard.

Of the 22 districts making up the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, the 2 districts of Leh and Kargil will now be part of Ladakh UT.

The 20 districts of Kupwara, Badgam, Punch, Rajouri, Kathua, Baramula, Bandipore, Srinagar, Ganderbal, Pulwama, Shupiyan, Anantnag, Kulgam, Doda, Ramban, Kishtwar, Udhampur, Reasi, Jammu, Samba will form part of Jammu & Kashmir UT.

For 26 years I have been doing what I want to. I know I have been lucky. I don't beat around the bush. Not too much into networking. Hate those who push connections over merit. Love traveling. Quality or Quantity still puzzle me at times. Haven't turned into anything other than being me, neither have an intent to. Prefer living in present or future, but a lifelong student of history. A father. A husband. A brother. A friend. A colleague. An Indian. A Sikh. A Punjabi And above all a Dilli-walah.
