J&K: Internet services partially restored

    Srinagar (NVI): Internet services were partially restored in Jammu and Kashmir today.

    This comes after the J&K administration on Tuesday issued orders to restore broadband services in all government offices and institutions offering essential services like hospitals and banks.

    However, there will be a complete ban on social media, the government order said. A review will be conducted after a week and the Lieutenant-Governor will then take a call on the restoration of cellphone internet services, it said.

    The order came days after the Supreme Court, on January 10, had asked the UT administration to review all curbs, including a ban on the internet after the abolition of Article 370 in August last year.
