Postpaid mobile phone services restored in Kashmir


Post-paid mobile services on all networks were restored in the Kashmir Valley on October 14. This comes 72 days after they were first snapped following restrictions.

Around 40 lakh post-paid mobile phones have become operational from October 14 noon.

Restrictions on these telecommunication services were imposed after the Centre, on August 5, abrogated Jammu and Kashmir (J&K)’s special status and bifurcated it into two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. These will come into being on October 31.

Partial fixed line telephony was resumed in the Valley on August 17 and by September 4, nearly 50,000 landlines were declared operational.
