Sale of illegal SIMs: KCCI welcomes Rangers' warning to cellphone cos

President Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Iftikhar Ahmed Vohra while welcoming Pakistan Rangers Sindh's warning to all mobile phone companies about the sale of unregistered/illegal SIMs, reiterated KCCI's six-year old demand to shut down all prepaid SIMs in one go and reissue them to subscribers' postal addresses, which would get rid of all illegal SIMs.

Advocating Pakistan Rangers Sindh's warning to book executives of mobile phone companies if any illegal SIM is found to have been used in any terror activity, President KCCI recalled that Chairman Businessmen Group & Former President KCCI Siraj Kassam Teli has been raising this particular issue since past six years and urging the governments from time to time to order all mobile phone companies to shut down all prepaid SIMs and reissue them to subscribers' postal addresses which would get rid of illegal SIMs.

BMG Chairman believes that this entire process of reissuing prepaid SIMs to subscribers' postal addresses through courier service can be completed within two to three days as all mobile phone companies operating in Pakistan were fully equipped and using state-of-the-art IT solutions to maintain their database, President KCCI noted.-PR
