With the Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) Reorganisation Act, 2019 to come into force from 31 October 2019, preparations are afoot to ensure administrative systems are in place in the new Union Territories (UT).

As per a Times of India report, orders have been issued by the general administration department to set up a full-fledged civil secretariat in Leh for the UT of Ladakh. Ladakh will also get its own inspector general of police (IGP) as per the provisions.

Earlier on Thursday (17 October), the state administration had notified the dissolution of the J&K legislative council and its staff was asked to report to the general administration department by 22 October.

With the historic act coming into force from 31 October, the J&K state will cease to exist and will be replaced by the UTs of J&K and Ladakh.
