New Delhi, August 06 (KMS): Indian Supreme Court, today, adjourned the hearing on the petitions challenging the constitutional validity of Article 35A, which grants special rights and privileges to permanent residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

The three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra declined the Jammu and Kashmir administration’s request for deferment of the case until December this year, media reports said.

The hearing was today adjourned because of the absence of the third judge of the bench. The case has been listed for next hearing on August 27.

Four petitions demanding scrapping of the provision have been moved before the Supreme Court. The main petition was filed by a Delhi-based NGO “We the Citizens”.
