The villagers in twin villages of Rampora and Rajpora in Zainageer belt of Sopore were connected to the cellular world for the first time on Saturday after a mobile tower was installed there, spreading happiness among the residents.

A resident said that they have been pressing the authorities to install a tower in the area during the past seventeen years. “Finally, the day has arrived as Reliance Jio operationalised a tower in the forest area,” he said.

The mobile phone services were launched in Jammu and Kashmir in 2003.
