Instrument of Accession was signed in 1947
Let us tell you that Article 370 started with King Hari Singh of Kashmir. In October 1947, Hari Singh, the then Maharaja of Kashmir, signed a letter of accession, stating that Jammu and Kashmir would transfer its power to the Government of India on the basis of three subjects i.e. foreign affairs, defense and communications.
