Greetings from Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, New Delhi & National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bengaluru!



The government sees the withdrawal of article 370 and 35A in Kashmir as important milestones for the unity and integrity of the country. Although the gateway for commerce and huge investments have opened since then, we still don't know whether the policy measures of overhauling the local administration have successfully countered the biggest hurdles like corruption, appeasement and nepotism in the peace-building process in Kashmir.
