Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: After the Pulwama terror attack, whereas India is making efforts to isolate Pakistan, measures are also being taken to ensure such incidents don’t recur.

To that end, the Union Home Ministry on Thursday approved all the paramilitary forces to travel by air in the routes Delhi-Srinagar, Srinagar-Delhi, Jammu-Srinagar and Srinagar-Jammu.

After this approval by the Home Ministry, about 7,80,000 jawans of central armed forces of the rank of constable, a head constable and ASI will be benefited immediately. They were not previously eligible to be flown to join their posts.

In fact, the jawans can avail of this facility even during vacations — when travelling from Jammu to Kashmir, or while returning home.

At least 40 soldiers were killed in the attack on the CRPF convoy in Pulwama. They were returning to duty after a holiday. The incident shocked the nation. Since then, continuous efforts are being made to take precautionary measures.
