On Tuesday, the government announced that the broadband internet service would be restored in government-run hospitals and SMS facility on all mobiles from Tuesday midnight in Kashmir.
However, the SMS service worked from December 31 midnight only on BSNL postpaid phones. It was not working in Jio, Airtel and Vodafone connections. Airtel officials said they had received communication from the government on the restoration of SMS service on postpaid phones but due to technical flaw they were unable to restore SMS service.
The internet services, landline and mobile phones were snapped across Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 in view of abrogation of Article 370.
