Home Ministry Planning To Propose Rs 2000 Crore ‘Resettlement Fund’ For PoK Refugees: Reports

Published on 16 August, 2016 at 6:16 pm By

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.

According to TOI, the government not only wants to release the financial package but also bring forward alleged atrocities that have been committed by Pakistan in PoK.

The proposal is part of PM Modi’s Rs 80,000 crores package, which was announced for Jammu and Kashmir last year.

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.

According to estimate, more than 36,000 families from PoK have migrated to J&K since 1947.

If the funds get approved, this will be the first time that the PoK refugees will get any relief.

They have been waiting for nearly 68 years and gotten nothing but assurance over the decades.
