Now, Jammu & Kashmir cannot have a separate flag of its own. The Indian National Flag will be raised from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.

The special status from the states of Jammu & Kashmir has been removed, due to which the central government can directly control the constitution in Jammu & Kashmir.

Ladakh will be separated from Jammu & Kashmir and be made a separate Union Territory, although it will not have a Legislative Assembly.
