Pulwama: The subscribers of government as well private telecommunication companies have complained about erratic calling and internet services in Kamla and Buchoo villages of Tral hamlet in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

The residents said that they cannot make any calls even during emergencies and living without proper connectivity in todays world is like living in dark age.
“Most of the works in modern era are done on mobile phones but in absence of proper connectivity, they are unable to avail any government service or scheme and have to visit offices for even minor things,” the locals said.
“We usually move to other places to make phone calls as our phones remain out of service, when we stay indoors,” they said.
The locals said that students as well as job aspirants have been suffering as everything is being done online nowadays.
They said that government must give directions to telecom companies to at least install one tower in the area.
The locals said that during emergencies they are unable to contact their relatives who also get worried when they are unable to contact them.
“We have brought this issue into the notice of concerned authorities several times but despite repeated assurances the ground situation has remained as it was,” they said.
They appealed concerned authorities from the government as well as private cellular companies to install tower in their areas, so that they can avail mobile phone network facility in this modern era.
The locals have sought personal intervention of LG Manoj Sinha and concerned deputy commissioner in providing signal towers in the area so that people can avail the service.
