In an incremental but significant step, the government has agreed to restore 4G mobile internet in one district of Jammu and Kashmir each on a trial basis after 15 August i.e. Independence Day. This has been stated in Union of India's additional affidavit filed last night and also confirmed by the Attorney General during today's hearing before the Supreme Court in Foundation for Media Professional's contempt petition relating to the internet restrictions in Jammu & Kashmir which recently crossed one year. While the contempt petition has been disposed off, the government has been directed to file a reply regarding non-publication of orders in review and lack of periodic review every five/seven working days.
