Broadband internet service in government hospitals and SMS on all mobile phones in the Valley were restored from midnight on Tuesday in Jammu and Kashmir. Landline and mobile phone services were discontinued on August 4, a day before the removal of Article 370 in this union territory. However, within a week of this decision, the rest of the services were restored, leaving mobile internet in Jammu.
“Continuous efforts of the government have been to facilitate and move forward as much as possible and as quickly as possible, and ever since August 5, we have been progressing in this direction both in Jammu and in Kashmir. We have been moving progressively forward and we will try to ensure as much and as quickly as possible,” Kansal said in response to a question about the restoration of Internet services.
Earlier, postpaid services were restored in Kashmir in October.
