The government of India scrapped off article 370 making Jammu and Kashmir an Union Territory. Is it possible on the part of the government to convert any Indian state to a Union Territory?
Yes, article 3 of the Indian Constitution accords the parliament to alter the boundaries of a state or union territory. For this, the state legislature's views are not binding upon the parliament. So, In making state to UT or UT to state or merging a part of state to other state or some other combinations mentioned in the article 3, the parliament has it's own say.
