Srinagar: The 4G internet services are likely to be restored in Jammu and Kashmir, a local news agency KNS reported on Wednesday.
It said the J&K administration has sent a formal request to Home Ministry for the restoration of these services.
Sources in the administration said Lt Governor G C Murmu, Chief Secretary and Principal Secretary School Education are keen to start e-classes at earliest so that the students do not suffer. “It was after this understanding that J&K administration wrote to Home Ministry regarding the restoration of 4G internet services,” an official said.
Political leaders, students and their parents have been demanding restoration of 4G internet services in the region to allow educational institutes offer e-learning to students, who suffered last year due to the seven-month lockdown.
A health official said that doctors across Kashmir are also unable to download the quarantine protocol and treatment procedures due to slow internet speed.
