Kashmir Pandits are intelligent, honest and innocent. Most of them are well established in their respective places working in multinational companies, public sectors and various government sectors as high paid employees across India and abroad. Although a rehabilitation package of 20 lakh rupees per family to re-construction of their houses is enough, it is too less as compared to their earnings and they will never come back leaving all.
S P Kachru, General Secretary, Kashmiri Pandits' Association, Mumbai says, For the time being, I am not concerned about the package but if it really announced, it is really a constructive step. If the new government offers a rehabilitation package of 20 lakh rupees to each family and other safety measures and how and where to establish assuring all types of support from the government, a new road will be constructed to bring Kashmiri Pandits back to Kashmir and nearly 70-80% Pandits who have been eagerly waiting to go back to their land will follow the road to Kashmir.
