SMC asks cable operators, internet service providers to remove above-ground cables

Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) on Monday asked cable operators and internet providers in Srinagar to remove above-ground wires across the city within 15 days.
Corporation has also asked them to follow proper procedure before installing any cable in the SMC limits.

“These majors have been taken under the smart city project, and in the coming time, no above-ground wiring will be allowed in the city; all these service providers have to lay their lines underground while following the due procedure of the Srinagar Municipal Corporation,” a senior SMC official told Rising Kashmir.

It has been observed that various telecom service operators, internet providers, local cable network operators, etc. have laid cables, wires, OFCs, junction boxes, utilities, etc. in a very unorganised and haphazard manner along various roads, areas, and streets in Srinagar City which has become dangerous to life and property and making the city aesthetically poor.

In this connection, SMC Commissioner Athar Aamir Khan has also issued a notice that reads, “The cable operators and telecom service providers have been warned that the cables will be disconnected at their risk and responsibility if they fail to remove them within 15 days.”

If they fail to comply to the directions, SMC will disconnect or remove these cables, lines, wires, junction boxes, utilities, etc. at the risk and cost of the concerned telecom service providers, internet operators, and cable operators.

“Any new laying of cables shall be done only after getting the requisite permissions and clearances and following all due protocols and applicable norms,” the notice reads. Rising Kashmir
