Police on Friday warned arrest of those ”inciting people on domicile law” in Kashmir.

The new domicile law that has been brought into effect on Wednesday states, any person who has stayed in Jammu and Kashmir for more than 15 years or studied for 7 years and has given 10th/12th examination will be considered as a domicile.

The children of the people living in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir who live outside the union territory because of work, business or other professionals, and vocational reasons will also be considered as a domicile in the union territory if their parents satisfy all the criteria and can get a domicile certificate.

The level four jobs include class 4 employees, police constables, laboratory bearers and assistants in addition to other equivalent posts carrying the same pay scale.
