SMS facility, both on post-paid and pre-paid mobile services in Jammu and
Kashmir, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, G Kishan Reddy said in Lok
Sabha on Tuesday.
“There are no

mobile service in Jammu and Kashmir. Mobile data service and internet access
through fixed-line also restored with certain restrictions,” the Minister
said in Lok Sabha.
Restrictions were put in place in Jammu and Kashmir in the
wake of the abrogation of Article 370 last year.

Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to the erstwhile
state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The government had also simultaneously announced to
