JAMMU AND KASHMIR TO GET LIMITED 4G ACCESS

Focus: GS-II Governance

Why in news?

  • In the last hearing, the court asked the Centre to explain whether 4G network could be restored in select areas of Jammu and Kashmir where there was no trouble.
  • Attorney General informed the Supreme Court that 4G Internet access will be opened up after Independence Day in one district in each of Jammu and Kashmir’s divisions.
  • The “carefully calibrated” opening up of 4G access would be on a trial basis.

Details

  • The Centre, however, said a blanket removal of the 4G ban was not possible now, considering the “overall situation” and “threat perception” to national, border and local security.
  • The access will be limited to specified areas that are not adjacent to the international border and have seen “low intensity terrorist activities”.
  • Access will be strictly monitored to protect national, border and local security.
