Migrant Kashmiri Pandits seek IPD status


NEW DELHI: An organization of Kashmiri Pandits today demanded declaring members of the community, who have migrated from the Valley, as Internally Displaced People (IPD) and sought facilities for them as per the norms laid down by the United Nations.

The All Kashmiri Pandit Coordination Committee submitted a memorandum to Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary seeking IPD status for the Pandits who had to leave their homes following the onset of militancy in 1990.

There are 62,000 migrant families living outside the Valley out of which 40,000 stay in , 20,000 in the capital and another 2,000 in other parts of the country.

According to the UN, Internally Displaced People are those who have been forced to flee their homes but remain within their country's borders. June 20 is observed every year as Refugees Day. (AGENCIES)
