Not everywhere, but experimentally, the Center is lifting the ban on 4G services in two districts of Jammu and Kashmir. This was stated by Attorney General KK Venugopal in the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
He said the ban on the use of 4G mobile internet service in a district of Jammu and a district of Kashmir would be lifted from August 16, the day after Independence Day. Initially, the ban was lifted for two months.
The level of terrorist activities is low in those two districts. The situation will be reviewed every week, the attorney general said.
The Center also explained why the 4G service is not being rolled out across the state. “The overall situation is not yet conducive to lifting sanctions in Jammu and Kashmir (everywhere),” the attorney general said.
