The Central government has finally decided to lift restrictions on high speed internet services in Jammu and Kashmir and in this direction, the government has told the Supreme Court that after a few days they will on a trial basis start 4G services in each district of Jammu and Kashmir regions.
J&K Union Territory has been under the communication curbs since August 5, last year though, curbs were lifted partially but 4G services remained suspended for more than a year now.
It has resulted in huge problems to the student community especially those thousands of students who have come back to Kashmir valley from different educational institutions after the growing pandemic in the month of March followed by lockdown.
Most of them have failed either to attend the classes online with their parent educational institutions or the speed has been so low that they have not been able to get exactly what has been taught to them through these virtual class rooms.
Likewise trade community and especially health services suffered a lot due to the low speed internet and despite appeals in the media and finally through a writ petition in the Supreme Court, the medical fraternity of Jammu and Kashmir has in detail told the court about the hardships faced by them due to the curbs on the internet.
