Phone services in Ladakh

I have a Reliance GSM prepaid sim. I presume that this does not work? Should we get prepaid BSNL at Leh? Thanks!
Getting a prepaid in J&K isn’t that easy and not really worth it, unless you are planning to stay for a while. Better bet would be to get a postpaid connection from MTNL/BSNL in your city and that will work in J&K as well.

Thanks! So, prepaid accounts from elsewhere do not work. But can NRIs get a postpaid connection in, say, Delhi from MTNL/BSNL? Thanks!

They usually get prepaid connection in Leh if they are staying long enough, otherwise they rely on internet cafe and pay phones.
