Abstract


The Kashmir conflict as a consequent of Partition of India, costs heavy damage to the economy of Kashmir and both India and Pakistan. The people of the Kashmir became victims of voilence forged by both subversive groups and security agecies. In this paper, the author has attempted to analyse the impact of turmoil on economy of Kashmir Valley and benefits of ongoing peace process between India and Pakistan under the nomenclature of Confidence Building Measures (CBMs). The relative importance of peace and development is crux of this paper. The establishment of peace in Kashmir Valley would be an economic boon for J&K in general and Kashmir in particular, which has been evidenced in the paper by stastistical analysis.
