YES and NO | Depends if it wants to or not
UN can of course interfere in such moves, especially when this type of things happen in a disputed area and affecting masses.
It can start with scheduling a discussion session on this topic and then, based on votes of then member nations, might "recommend" Indian to either change it or put it back.
In extreme cases, if India doesn't follow the recommendations, it can order internal or external sanctions on India like lending money from World Bank etc.
Also, like I said, in very extreme case it can order to send UN Peace Keeping Forces in that area as well.
Other member/concerned nations can also put individual sanctions in India and pull off their diplomatic and trade ties (like Pakistan as done already).
Now the thing is "Do they really want to?"
India is already handling this situation diplomatically enough that it is not visible any extreme concern outside India (even within India not many people outside J&K state knows about actual situation other there)
And with good enough booming ties with US and already good relations with Russia, India have enough control in UN. Only China is a concerning state it is direct and indirect stakeholder in this issue (direct as China allegedly illegally occupied part of J&K state as Aksai Chin and indirectly as an all-weather ally of Pakistan)
Let's see how it goes.
On 14 February 2019, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora (near Awantipora) in the Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir, India. The attack resulted in the deaths of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF)[a] personnel and the attacker. The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed. A Jaish-e-Mohammed member named Adil Ahmad Dar, a Kashmiri local, was identified as the attacker.
Airstrikes into POK
We can see it just happened. The 2019 Balakot airstrike occurred on 26 February 2019, when twelve Mirage 2000H jets of the Indian Air Force crossed the Line of Control in Kashmir to perform an airstrike on an alleged terrorist training camp inside Pakistan in retaliation for an attack on it's paramilitary forces, which took place two weeks prior.

"Upper-caste Hindus are the richest in India, owning 41% of total assets" - What should better be done to solve inequality?
Is the booming Indian economy breeding inequality?
Only 22.3 per cent of the country’s higher caste Hindus own 41 per cent of the country’s total wealth and form the richest group, whereas 7.8 per cent of Hindu Scheduled Tribes own only 3.7 per cent, or the lowest wealth share of the country’s assets, finds a study jointly undertaken by the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and Indian Institute of Dalit Studies.
Reset reservation model from "only-caste" basis to "caste-cum-economy" basis"
As per my personal experience, reservation model only on caste basis is getting misused a lot now. This model was created 7 decades ago.
Situation as changed a lot after that. Now, reservation is being used by already rich and educated families and the one who needs it the most don't even know about it.
Also, influential people by-pass the caste based system easily with money/power and get themselves fake certificates.
Adding economy-with-caste adds another layer to it. And the one who needs it most shall have access to it better then.
I am not saying it shall solve the problem in whole, but it could be a step toward improvising the thing,
