New Delhi, Aug. 13 -- Jammu and Kashmir is all set to host an Investors Summit in October, officials said on Tuesday.

Principal Secretary (Commerce & Industry), Jammu and Kashmir, NK Chaudhary, said the summit will be hosted on Oct 12 to Oct 14.

"This will be first ever global summit being hosted by the state till date," Chaudhary told media.

The Indian government last week withdrew Jammu and Kashmir's special status by scrapping Articles 370 and 35A.

The Narendra Modi government also took away the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated it into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir with an assembly and Ladakh without an assembly.

Meanwhile, Eid was celebrated peacefully in Kashmir on Monday.
