The eagerly anticipated verdict on petitions challenging the abrogation of Article 370, which bestowed special privileges upon Jammu and Kashmir, is set to be delivered by the Supreme Court on December 11. Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud, leading a constitution bench, had previously reserved judgment on September 5, considering a series of petitions contesting the central government’s actions that led to the revocation of Article 370 and the division of the state into two union territories.
The impending decision holds significant implications, as it addresses the constitutional validity of the government’s measures that reshaped the status of Jammu and Kashmir. The culmination of this case will mark a pivotal moment in the legal landscape, offering clarity on the contentious issue that has sparked debates and discussions nationwide.
