2G services extended till 19th August 2020

The Home Department, J & K has extended 2G speed mobile internet services in Jammu and Kashmir with certain conditions till 19 August unless modified earlier.

A review of the situation was taken in the Union Territory in which the decision to extend 2G speed mobile internet was taken in view of “misuse in planning and executing militancy related acts including attacks on security forces, political workers and innocent civilians, facilitate infiltration, etc.”

Justifying continuing 2G mobile internet speed in J&K, the Home Department has said that there “are inputs suggesting rise in the anti-national activities over the coming weeks, more so in view of completion of a year since implementation of the constitutional changes viz-a-viz J&K, Independence day celebrations, etc.”
