Today 69 days later, postpaid mobile services to be restored in Jammu and Kashmir
In a major step towards easing curbs in Jammu and Kashmir, postpaid mobile services will be restored from Monday, the Jammu and Kashmir administration announced on Saturday.
Principal Secretary of Planning Commission in Jammu and Kashmir and senior IAS officer, Rohit Kansal announced at a press conference on Saturday that the postpaid mobile services will stand functional from 12 noon on Monday in the remaining areas of Jammu and Kashmir.
Postpaid mobile services were slated to resume from Saturday but a last minute technical hitch led to deferring of the resumption of services.
However, the subscribers will have to wait for some more time for Internet services to resume in the Valley, the spokesman said.
At one point it was planned to open only BSNL services followed by allowing activating only incoming calls run by private telecom operators.
The move comes barely days after the Centre issued an advisory opening the Valley for tourists. Travel association bodies had approached the administration, saying that no tourist would like to come to the valley where no mobile phones working.
