SRINAGAR, Nov 13: Internet services across all platforms continued to be suspended in Kashmir for the 101st day today following the abrogation of certain provisions of Article 370 and normal life remained disrupted due to the ongoing unannounced shutdown, officials said.
They said despite growing demands for restoration of the internet services, especially from the journalistic community, there is no word from the authorities on it.
Media persons had held a protest march on Tuesday, demanding immediate resumption of internet facilities.
All communication lines -- landline and mobile phone services and internet services -- have remained suspended since August 5, when the Centre revoked the special status accorded to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and announced the decision to bifurcate it into two Union territories.
While landline and postpaid mobile phone services have been restored in the Kashmir Valley, prepaid mobile phone and internet services remain suspended.
