Main Points of the commission orders 

  • The delimitation of the Assembly and Parliamentary constituencies was done by the commission on the basis of the 2011 census.
  • The Assembly seats in Jammu and Kashmir were last delimited in 1995 based on the 1981 Census.

  • By this reorganization, each Parliamentary Constituency will have an equal number of 18 Assembly Constituencies each.
