As for this year, the month of December has not ended and the country has already witnessed as many as 103 internet cut-offs, according to SFLC stats.
This includes the recent temporary shutdowns in New Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya, and Arunachal Pradesh as well as the shutdown that has been active in Indian-administered Kashmir for more than four months.
The internet in Kashmir was suspended to "keep the peace" in the region after it was stripped of its semi-autonomous status with the revocation of Article 370 of the Constitution. Even today, it has no internet service.
In fact, SFLC's stats indicate that the region of Jammu and Kashmir alone has had 180 shutdowns since 2012, accounting for half of the total shutdowns.
