The SIMs of customers having more than nine SIM cards will be re-verified. In case the SIM is not verified, the order has been given to turn off the SIM.
The mobile connection will be marked for re-verification. SIM card will be disabled if they are not verified
If you have more mobile sims in your name then this news is of your use. The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has issued an order that a subscriber can have nine connections across India and six connections in Jammu and Kashmir, North East and Assam. As per the order, the subscribers will be given the option to choose the connection they want to retain and deactivate the rest of the connection. The order said that if during the data analysis done by DoT it is found that a subscriber has more than nine mobile connections (six in case of J&K, Northeast and Assam LSAs) across all TSPs (Telecom Service Providers) ) then the mobile connection will be marked for re-verification. If they are not verified then the SIM card will be disabled.
The Central Government has given this order by the Department of Telecommunication. Dot says that the SIMs of customers having more than nine SIM cards will be re-verified. In case the SIM is not verified, the order has been given to turn off the SIM. The order has come from the Department of Telecommunications to investigate incidents of financial crimes, fake calls, automated calls and fraudulent activities. DoT has asked telecom operators to remove from the database all those flagged mobile connections which are not in use as per the rules.
“The outgoing (including data services) features of the flagged mobile connection shall be suspended within 30 days” and “the incoming service shall be suspended within 45 days.” On the other hand, if a customer does not come for re-verification, the flagged number will be deactivated within 60 days, which will be counted from December 7.
The order states that “an additional 30 days will be provided in case of a customer who is on international roaming or is physically disabled or hospitalised.”
