Domicile Certificate means a certificate provided by a State Government in India. The state government issued this certificate to differentiate the native people of the state and the people who come from other states of India. State governments use this certificate to provide better services to their people. It is used primarily in Jobs, where the state government gives a defined share of jobs to the native people of the state. Many state governments and the Union territories of India provide this certificate like domicile certificate Delhi, domicile certificate Maharashtra, Gujrat, U.P, and newly domicile certificate of Jammu and Kashmir.
After the abrogation of 370 in Jammu and Kashmir on 5 August 2019, there is a need for new laws in Jammu and Kashmir. So, this new Domicile Law is implemented in J&K. Now, people from other states also apply for this certificate. Also, Children of West Pakistan Refugees, Valmikis, displaced persons, PoK families, and Kashmiri migrants can apply for this. The Jammu and Kashmir administration started giving these certificates on 27 June 2020 in the presence of Lieutenant Governor G.C Murmu.
