Abstract: Entrepreneurship is the globally accepted source for economic development in underdeveloped countries like India and Pakistan. The internet is used as a business resource for growth and development. The internet is a global network that provides information and communication facilities. Shutdown of internet services has become a common trend in Jammu and Kashmir to stop rumors and misinformation sharing on social media applications. But it affects the economy and social life of people living in Jammu and Kashmir. Shutdown of internet has become common in Jammu and Kashmir after the militants used social media as a tool for recruiting the young generation. Government of Jammu and Kashmir snapped internet services whenever any anti-military and antigovernment operation happened. Continued shutdown of internet in the region results in winding up small business unit, which operates through internet. This paper particularly focused on how internet shutdowns affect the entrepreneur and which problems are faced by entrepreneurs in Jammu and Kashmir by the shutdown of internet in the area.
