In the last few days, a news is going viral saying that the mobile phone and SIM card should be in the name of the same person, otherwise it will not work. It has also made mobile users panic.
We have tried to understand the reality of this news with Achutananda Mishra, the co-spokesperson of the regulatory Nepal Telecommunication Authority. Mishra made it clear that no homework has been done on this issue yet.
Then what is the reality of the news that has been quoting him? In response to that, co-spokesperson Mishra said, “While speaking at a program of Asti mobile distributors, I had put some things as a possible way to control illegal mobiles and stolen mobiles. The only way I can think of is to develop a system so that the mobile and SIM card should be of the same person. I expressed.”
But he clarified that the regulator has not yet started any formal process on that matter. “There is no need to be alarmed by this,” he said.
