The panel has been tasked with gathering biographic and biometric details of illegal migrants and maintaining an updated digital record regularly. “Sanction is hereby accorded to the re-constitution of the committee to identify foreign nationals illegally overstaying in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir since 2011”, Principal Secretary to the Government, Home Department, Chandraker Bharti said in an order.
