  1. a-value (for the whole time period) and b-value are Gutenberg–Richter seismicity parameters, magnitude of completeness (mc) and maximum credible earthquakes (mmax) and maximum observed earthquake (mobs) of all the seismic zones of Greater Kashmir after Sana and Nath (2017). The Seismogenic zones are: Hazara-Kashmir Syntaxis Seismic Zone (HKS-SZ), Nanga Parbat Syntaxis Seismic Zone (NPS-SZ), SE Kashmir-Seismic Zone (SEK-SZ), Kohistan Seismic Zone (KH-SZ) and Karakorum Seismic Zone (KM-SZ)
