Provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir were scrapped on August 5.

As per this Article, except for defence, foreign affairs, finance and communications, Parliament needs the state government's concurrence for applying all other laws.

Union Minister Amit Shah stated in Parliament that one of the major reasons to scrap this Article was to invite foreign investment and promoting tourism in the state.
