The Jammu and Kashmir administration today announced the internet services and SMS services will be restored in Valley from today midnight. However, broadband services will be restored in only government hospitals. Announcing the move, principal secretary Rohit Kansal said: “SMS services to be restored from midnight, December 31 in Kashmir valley…broadband services in government hospitals will start from 31 December,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
Kansal told PTI that on December 10, some SMSs were enabled on mobile phones in order to facilitate students, scholarship applicants, traders and others. “It has now been decided to fully restore the service throughout Kashmir from midnight of December 31,” he said. The Jammu and Kashmir administration has been relaxing restoring services in stages in the last few weeks.
The Valley had slipped into complete lockdown after the central government had abrogated the special status granted to the states under Article 370.
