4G Mobile Services Restored On Trial In Two J-K Districts

High-speed mobile data services have been restored on a trial basis in Ganderbal and Udhampur districts of Jammu and Kashmir from Sunday (today) for post-paid sim cardholders, according to Jammu and Kashmir Home Department.

According to the order, the trial period which begins from 9 pm today will stay in force till September 8, 2020, unless it is modified earlier.

Internet speed in other districts in the Union Territory will however be restricted to 2g only.

The Inspector-General of Police of both Jammu and Kashmir have been asked to communicate these directions to the service providers with immediate effect and ensure their implementation.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Supreme Court had disposed off a plea seeking contempt proceedings against Union Home Secretary and Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir for allegedly not complying with its earlier order on reviewing restoration of 4G internet service in the Union Territory.

A bench headed by NV Ramana also asked the Centre to file a reply on the intervention application filed in the matter and posted the matter for further hearing after two weeks.

The contempt petition was filed by an NGO named Foundation for Media Professionals seeking the restoration of 4G internet services in Jammu and Kashmir and alleging that the top court’s earlier orders are not being complied with by concerned authorities.

During the hearing, the Central government submitted that the Committee, set up to review the restoration of 4G internet service, is considering to allow the same in one district each of Jammu and Kashmir on a trial basis. (ANI)
