Postpaid mobile phone services restored in Kashmir

Restrictions on these telecommunication services were imposed after the Centre, on August 5, abrogated Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and 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.
