NEW DELHI—India said it would reinstate some internet access this week to millions of residents of the Kashmir Valley, but will continue to block mobile internet service and social-media sites as the government faces a continued backlash over its decision last year to end the special status of the Muslim-majority region.
Fixed-line internet services in essential institutions such as government offices, hospitals and banks will be reinstated within days, according to an order by local authorities issued late Tuesday.
