Kuldeep Kashmiri highlighted the plight of over-aged relief holders, who are among the worst affected by this prolonged displacement. He emphasized that individuals who were in the age group of 18 to 35 during 1990-91 are now in their fifties and seventies, having missed the prime of their youth due to circumstances beyond their control. The Government was urged to compensate for the losses suffered by these individuals.

In addition to submitting a memorandum to Anil Koul, the delegation is actively reaching out to politicians, officers, social activists and the general public to raise awareness about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits. Secretary Anil Koul reiterated his commitment to providing every possible support to the displaced community.
