This refers to the ban on pre-paid mobile connections in Jammu and Kashmir. Both the companies and government are responsible for the inconvenience people are facing at the moment. The mobiles have become virtually defunct in absence of recharge. This is notwithstanding the money that companies took from the subscribers to increase the validity of their SIM cards. What for was the validity increased if you had to stop doing recharge? What purpose will the recharge-less SIMs serve? It is causing huge embarrassment to the subscribers who only happen to exchange "missed calls."
