Coming Feb, telecom users from J&K and some other areas, particularly from the North Eastern belt, may have to switch to postpaid connections, as the telecom regulator along with the defence ministry is considering a ban on prepaid connections in there areas.
The decision would decide the fate some million users, who already use prepaid connections in these areas. According to sources, this count could go upto 8-9 million as the areas account for about 10 million mobile users. The ministry had set a deadline, which falls in the mid of next month and may likely be extended for a while till a collective decision isn’t taken from the authorities.
