Pakistan telecommunication authority launches Proper ID verification project. This project has started to block all unregistered and unknown SIM(s). Last week interior minister Rehman Malik raised new question of One SIM on One CNIC but telecom companies showed their strong response against Mr. Malik statement.
Few months back PTA started SIM information system which got good response but it was worthy only for internet users. PTA has block approximately 16 million mobile connection in first and second phase against unregistered SIM(s).
In Proper ID verification project; PTA is reconstructing mobile numbers verification. Now all mobile users have to send their CNIC number to 668 through SMS. PTA has already warned several times to block unregistered SIM.
