The Government has decided to  restore 4G internet services in Udhampur district  of   Jammu region and possibly Budgam district in  the Central Kashmir from  tomorrow , according to highly placed official sources .

These sources said that while it is certain that Udhampur district will get the 4G network from tomorrow , Budgam district in the Valley falls in the “ may be”  category.  But they cautioned that it will be the trial basis.

The 4G network was  snapped on August4/5 midnight last year  hours before the Central Government  revoked special status of  Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370  and Article 35 A and the announcement of the split of the erstwhile state into two  Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh .

Last week , the government had submitted before the Supreme Court that  it would restore 4G network in two districts- one each in Jammu and the Valley from August 16 on trial basis , as there were valid security concerns still in existence in the militancy-hit Kashmir .

The official sources said that they would be re-opening the 4 G network in Udhampur and tentatively in  Budgam district  with their fingers crossed as Pakistan is continuing with its instigating propaganda to  create a situation in the Valley .
