Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy on Sunday informed the Lok Sabha that there is no restriction on accessing any website in Jammu and Kashmir.
He added that social media websites also remain accessible in the newly formed Union Territory.
He said the mobile data services are presently restricted to 2G speed in all but two districts of the Union territory.
“There is no restriction on accessing any sites, including the social media sites,” he said in a written reply.
Reddy said the internet services are already available in Kashmir on fixed line (without any speed-related restrictions) as well as mobile data services (at 2G speed) since January 24, 2020.
He said restrictions on accessing social media sites were also lifted on March 4, 2020. Further, high speed mobile data services too have been commenced in the districts of Ganderbal (Kashmir Division) and Udhampur (Jammu Division) with
