UNB, Dhaka
Nearly 21 lakh illegal SIMs due to be blocked tonight

A total of 2,049,927 SIM cards are due to be deactivated from midnight today as the SIMs cannot have in the market according to law. Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) is scheduled to deactivate additional SIMs of those who have more than 15 against one national identity (NID) card from early today, officials said.

The telecom regulator has identified a total of 2,049,927 such SIM cards and those will be deactivated within six hours after 12am, BTRC Senior Director Jakir Hossain Khan told the news agency yesterday.

As per the latest BTRC decision, a subscriber is allowed to register maximum 15 SIM cards against his/her NID card. BTRC Chairman Md Jahurul Haque said this move will ensure subscriber-friendly services and bring discipline in the telecom sector, expressing the hope that people will be able to receive better telecommunication services without any hindrance. On June 20, 2016, BTRC fixed 20 SIMs to be registered against one NID card and later it reduced the number to five on August, 2017.

On October 24, 2017, the commission revised its decision and set the number at 15. A subscriber can know how many SIM cards have been registered against his/her NID by dialing *16001# or by sending a SMS to 16001 typing the last four digits of the NID card.
