Internet has been blocked in the valley, land lines have gone dead, but no curfew is imposed though with ban on public meetings in Srinagar and other parts of the state .Services have been suspended in many areas in Kashmir Valley as a precaution and Satellite phones have reportedly been provided to officials for communication. Schools and colleges are closed in Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu and various institutions have directed their students to vacate hostels. Barricades have been erected on many arterial roads, including the entry and exit points to Srinagar. Riot control vehicles have also been kept on standby in some areas where there are apprehensions of unrest, and stone throwing by locals is anticipated

The BJP leadership had a hush hush congregation in Delhi ahead of the cabinet meeting and the crucial parliament session where the reorganisation of Jammu and Kashmir into an union territory with state assembly and Ladakh as a new UT were declared along with scrapping of article 370 in the Himalayan region .
