Postpaid mobile services restored in Kashmir

Straight Line News Network

Srinagar, Oct 14: Postpaid mobile services have been restored in Kashmir Valley after over two months since august 5 following Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370. Internet connectivity, however, will remain suspended for now.

The Central government had on 5 August abrogated Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and also bifurcated the state into Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

To prevent any backlash, the centre also imposed massive security restrictions and took measures that included arresting politicians, evacuating tourists, posting extra troops and blocking phone and internet lines.

Some of those curbs have been slowly relaxed, but Prepaid mobile and internet communications in the Kashmir Valley were largely still blocked. The advisory preventing tourists from visiting the state was lifted last Thursday.

Although the landline network was restored in phases, restrictions remained on the usage of mobile devices in various parts of the Valley but they have been lifted now.
