All Postpaid connections bought from anywhere in India will work in J&K.
J&K currently has the following telecom operators:
So, if you have a Vodafone connection for example, once in J&K, you phone will roam on one of the above service providers under an agreement by Vodafone and one of them.
I hope this was helpful.

Yes, it is too late to reply on this. However, above member (Amit Mehta) has given prompt reply on this. It is something strange from Government of India and State Government of Kashmir on this issue due to various internal security issue, most probably.
However, it is little awkward for the common Indian who used to travel to Jammu and Kashmir with their prepaid SIM mobile and suffers from tower connectivity issue or no calls allowed. The one who stay for a holiday has to either arrange Post paid SIM in advance or stay with no signal for their pre-paid SIM and use a local land phone for outgoing and incoming calls.
