Jammu, Aug 12: The Jammu and Kashmir administration said 300 special telephone booths are being established to help people communicate with their loved ones.
In an advisory, it said that liaison officers have also been activated in various areas, including Aligarh and New Delhi, to help students from Jammu and Kashmir communicate with their families.
The advisory was issued following the direction of Governor Satya Pal Malik.
Help would be extended to those students studying outside the state who wish to go home for Eid celebrations, the governor said.
