All Landline Exchanges In Kashmir To Be Restored, Cellphones Still Out
NDTV Published on Sep 5, 2019
A month after the central government ordered an unprecedented communications blackout while it scrapped Jammu and Kashmir's decades-old special status and split it into two union territories, all telephone exchanges still out of order in Kashmir are set to be restored, authorities said on Wednesday. While it was not immediately clear if it meant all landline connections under these 19 exchanges would be restored as well, few of these telephones serviced by government-run operator BSNL are used at homes. Internet and cellphone lines remain out of service across Kashmir.
