Spotlight shifts to 10 other states that have special category status
However, some experts believe that removing special status to Jammu and Kashmir is a one-off case
Special category status was granted in the past by the National Development Council on the recommendations of the Planning Commission to states that needed special consideration
With the abolition of Article 370 of the Constitution, the 10 states other than Jammu and Kashmir which enjoy special category status have come into focus, say political analysts. These are Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Himachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura and Uttarakhand.
