The Boundary Setting Committee for Redrawing the Jammu and Kashmir Election Map today announced and submitted the long-awaited final report. Completion of the controversial demarcation process will pave the way for conducting parliamentary elections in Jammu and Kashmir. The former state has no elected government since June 2018.

For the first time, all five parliamentary members will have the same number of parliamentary members. Nine seats are reserved for the Scheduled Tribes (ST) and the other is for the former state.

Of the 90 parliamentary members, 43 are part of the Jammu region and 47 are part of Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir has been treated as a single entity for the purpose of demarcation. The total number of assembled seats in Jammu has increased from 37 to 43.

All members of parliament shall remain within the boundaries of the relevant districts, in the order of boundary setting.

The Patwar circle is the lowest unbroken administrative unit.
