The body is the United Nations agency for gender equality and women's empowerment.

The Jammu and Kashmir Government on Friday abolished stamp duty on the sale of property registered in the name of females.

This was with the view to encourage families to register property in the name of their female members.

Meanwhile, state Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter to thank The UN Women India for welcoming the decision.

Thank you @unwomenindia. I truly hope this small step towards encouraging families to give women their due resonates all over the country & sets a strong precedent, she said in the tweet.
