The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) will hold ahigh-level meeting on Tuesday to discuss the implementation of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, which bifurcated the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories.

The meeting will discuss how to ensure that the Centre’s benefit schemes reach the citizens at the grassroots level. Among all the schemes, 85 direct individual benefit schemes of the government will be prominently taken up.

Till the J&K Reorganisation Act is implemented, the roleof the five advisors to the J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik will be further strengthened, with each receiving additional important responsibilities. These advisors are K Vijay Kumar, Khurshid Ahmad Ganai, K K Sharma, K Skandan andFarooq Khan.
