New Delhi: The government on Wednesday said that 58,697 families have been reported to have migrated from Kashmir Valley to other places since the emergence of militancy in Jammu and Kashmir.

"58,697 families have been reported to have migrated from Kashmir Valley to Jammu, Delhi and other places," Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh told Rajya Sabha in a written reply.

He was answering a question on the number of families who have migrated from Kashmir by January 2011.
"The Central government is reimbursing expenditure for cash and ration relief in respect of Kashmiri migrants in Jammu. The migrants in other states have been provided facilities to the eligible ones (migrants) which includes monthly allowance, provisions of other amenities for health, education and better living conditions as per scale fixed by them," Singh said.
