NA Committee Calls for Complete Ban on Prepaid SIMs
Commitee selected by National Assembly finalizing draft in order to recommend for the transfer of all pre paid mobil SIMs into post paid mobile Sims and all remaining Sims will be banned by the telecom companies.which results in the decreasing crime rate done by the usage of such Sims.
Somehow due to crime records these Sims are acting like weapon and effecting many innocent citizens in different ways.
But from Telecom perspective Government is not considering the output by the telecom and this act will directly effect the revenues generated by pre-paid Sims.
According to telecom sector the better initiative is to ban all Chinese hand sets.
Official said that infrastructure of telecom companies has been upgraded and tracking of SIMs used by the criminals and mobile sets with IMEI numbers can be traced with this up-gradation of infrastructure. However, cellular companies can’t track anything when thousands of handsets with same IMEI numbers come into play.
Telecom officials said they are open to work with the government to completely eliminate the issue of illegal SIMs, however, what government is demanding here (for a ban on prepaid SIMs) doesn’t make any sense.
