Even as the ‘dialogue war’ between India and Pakistan continues over Kashmir, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has reportedly proposed a plan of Rs 2000 crore so as to rehabilitate Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) refugees in Jammu and Kashmir.
The news was broken by a Times of India report which claims that the MHA is set to move the proposal before the Union Cabinet so that the amount can be disbursed amongst the needy.

The new proposal also comes in just two months after the PDP-BJP government’s submitted a Rs 2,000 crore scheme for PoK people settled in the border state.
If the funds get approved, this will be the first time that the PoK refugees will get any relief.
