The centre has decided to restore mobile messaging services in Kashmir from Tuesday midnight, nearly five months since its suspension. Broadband internet services will also be allowed in hospitals across the union territory from the New Year, although curbs on civilian use may remain. The curbs on internet and mobile messaging services were part of the communications clampdown imposed on Jammu and Kashmir after the scrapping of its special status under Article 370 on August 5. The authorities said it was done to ensure that "trouble-makers" do not succeed in mobilising the people against the administration.
