[sify] Indian government has now banned the sale and usage of pre-paid mobile connections in Kashmir region.
Sources say that this ban was implemented to stop the usage of these mobile devices for terrorist activities.
Prepaid phones are easier to get compared to postpaid ones and this is a preventive measure.
Government sources said: “All pre-paid mobile connections will stop functioning from November 1 after the home ministry’s order in this regard.”
