Now, no one can get a government job in Jammu and Kashmir without a satisfactory CID report on their background, following an amendment of the administration of the territory of the Union in the instructions of the civil service of the Jammu and Kashmir (Character and Background Check), 1997.

One will also be required to disclose whether a family member or close relative is associated with a political party or organization, or has participated in political activity, or has had ties to a foreign mission or organization, or any prescribed / prohibited / prohibited organization like Jamaat-e-Islami.
