First, you know some things about Delimitation committee.
This commission called Boundary Commission. Because this body fix limits or modify the limits of any Constituency. This boundaries may be Domestic, National, International or Electoral boundaries.

87 seats in Jammu & Kashmir Assembly.
There is a much difference in seats order.
The Kashmir region have 46 seats. The Jammu region have 37 seats and Ladakh region have 4 seats. There is a much difference in seats order. See the difference below.
Kashmir have 15.8% area and 54.9% Population. Jammu have 25.9% area and 42.9% Population while Ladakh have 58.3% area and 2.2% Population.(2011 census)
