Jammu and Kashmir: Restrictions to be eased as schools and colleges to re-open from Monday, landline phones to be restored

The restrictions were imposed ahead of abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A, and division of the state into two Union Territories on August 5

As normalcy is returning back to Jammu and Kashmir, the administration in the state has now decided to relax certain restrictions which were placed previously pre-empting a security threat from Pakistan backed terrorists.

According to the reports, Jammu and Kashmir administration has asked the schools and colleges the state to open from Monday. Reports also suggest that the government is considering opening phone and internet connections in the state in a phased manner.

It has been reported that government secretariat and other offices will start functioning from Friday while easing of public curbs would depend on day’s development after the ‘namaaz’, a Raj Bhawan spokesperson said on Thursday.

The officials had said that people have been allowed to move around Srinagar and other towns while adding that the number of security personnel deployed in the state continues to remain the same.

According to reports, the government is set to restore landline phones in Kashmir in a phased manner. The Jammu and Kashmir administration will also consider restoring mobile and internet connections. The Supreme Court today adjourned a petition filed by Kashmir Times editor Anuradha Bhasin seeking to lift information blockade. The CJI said he has read in newspapers that landlines will be restored in the state by evening, and the government should be given some time to bring the situation in the state to normalcy.

In Jammu and Kashmir, meanwhile, restrictions continued to be imposed for the 12th consecutive day today. The restrictions were imposed ahead of abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A, and division of the state into two Union Territories on August 5. However, the authorities have lifted restrictions on the movement of people in summer capital Srinagar. Section 144 continues to remain imposed in the Valley. Several restrictions imposed in Jammu region have already been lifted by the administration.
