Close to two-weeks after the government disconnected all communication channels in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, landline telephone services are being restored to parts of the state.

Seventeen out of 100 phone exchanges in the Kashmir Valley are operational, according to officials.

The Indian government says that restrictions are being lifted from 35 police stations across the Kashmir Valley, while schools are due to reopen from Monday, along with government offices.

Telephone and internet links had been cut and curfew-like restrictions that ban people from assembling in crowds were imposed.
