Gradually, messages related to the start of the Internet are being sent to the customers by various Internet service providers. Let us tell you that it was decided to extend the temporary ban on internet in Ranchi till 6 am on Sunday. But late-night it was decided that internet services would be restored from 4 am on Sunday.
Railway recruitment exam became the reason
Orders have been issued to the companies concerned to restore internet service in Ranchi. The reason behind this has been attributed to the online examination of the Railways to be held on Sunday. The order was issued by the Principal Secretary, Home Department, Rajiv Arun Ekka regarding the ban on internet services. Let us inform that online examinations are being taken for the restoration in various railway boards. Even today, railway exams are to be conducted in many shifts. For this, examination centers have been set up in many schools of the city including Tupudan and Tatisilve. It has been decided to start internet service so that the exam can be taken uninterruptedly.
Many works affected including online payment
Due to the shutdown of internet service in Ranchi for the last 36 hours, many types of work were affected. The biggest impact was seen on those works, which are directly connected to the Internet. All the work related to online payment remained affected. Apart from this, work like online classes, railway booking has not been done.
