Fact Check: Fake notices claims 4G internet to be restored in Jammu and Kashmir

  • Share


The notice purportedly by Jammu and Kashmir's Principal Secretary, Home, Shaleen Kabra, regarding the restoration of 4G internet services in the Union Territory is fake. No such order has been issued. 

An order purportedly issued by Jammu and Kashmir's Principal Secretary, Home, Shaleen Kabra, regarding restoration of 4G internet services in the Union Territory dating July 27, 2020, is going viral on social media platforms with a message that 4G internet connection will be restored soon in the union territory. 

 A Twitter user named Jatinder Bhagat shared the notice saying, "Finally 4G Restored in J&K".

The alleged order reads, "I, Shaleen Kabra, am fully satisfied that full speed internet (4G) should be restored in the Union Territory with immediate effect." 

(Order going viral on social media platforms)

A user named Rehan Khan put out a similar post on Twitter.

However, Jammu and Kashmir's administration has refuted the viral claim. 

PIB Jammu and Kashmir took to Twitter and stated that the order and the claim being made with it is fake. The clarification reads as, "Claim:An order is being circulated on social media mentioning that directions have been given to Internet Service Providers for lifting speed related restrictions in J&K. #FactCheck: The order is fake & no such direction has been issued by Principal Secretary Home, J&K."

Tahir Ashraf, Jammu, and Kashmir senior Police official also tweeted that the claim is fake. 

The internet was banned across Jammu and Kashmir when the Modi government withdrew the erstwhile state's special status, granted under Article 370, on August 5 last year. It was restored in a phased manner across the Union Territory. However, high-speed mobile internet continues to remain suspended. 2G speed internet is available for post-paid and fixed-line subscribers while pre-paid customers can get access after verification as for post-paid service.

In conclusion, the notice purportedly by Jammu and Kashmir's Principal Secretary, Home, Shaleen Kabra, regarding the restoration of 4G internet services in the Union Territory is fake. No such order has been issued.
