J&K acceded to the Union of India on 27th October, 1947 after the Maharaja of J&K, the only competent authority according to the Act of the British Parliament, signed the Instrument of Accession on 26th October, 1947 at his residential Amar Singh Palace at Jammu in the presence of Shri V.P. Menon.

Prof. Bhim Singh in his historic note addressed in the JKNPP affidavit addressed to the Supreme Court of India said that, “J&K finally merged in the Union of India on 20th August, 1952, the day J&K Constituent Assembly terminated the Monarchy thus ending all subjective conditions, if any, with the termination of Monarchy. Article 370 which was a temporary provision became infructuous with effect from the day of termination of Monarchy.”
