The region of Jammu and Kashmir would continue to manage with low-speed internet. The Supreme Court has refused to give a decision on the matter on Monday. Hearing the matter of 4G restoration in the Union Territory the apex court called for a panel.

The court has ordered setting up of a high-powered committee headed by MHA  Secretary. A bench comprising of justices N V Ramana, Justices R Subhash Reddy, and B R Gavai heard the matter and called for the panel on Monday.

The high-powered committee would also include the Chief Secretary of the UT and the secretary of the ministry of communications said the court.
