Icon5 Make Biometric Proof Must to Buy Sim Card: Delhi Police Commissioner





Citing grave risk to national security, Delhi Police commissioner Neeraj Kumar has urged the home affairs ministry to make it mandatory for mobile service providers to issue sim cards against fingerprints such as thumb impression or any other biometric feature of the subscriber, akin to 'Aadhar', before issuing a sim card.
In a missive to the home affairs ministry on May 15, Kumar has complained that cut-throat competition among the mobile service providers had led to laxity in carrying out the prescribed physical verification of a sim applicant. As a result distributors were making bulk sale of sim cards to 'desperate criminals' and cheats involved in so called Nigerian scams, which have serious implications for national security.

The letter comes half a year after the department of telecommunications made it mandatory for a mobile service provider to physically verify an applicant before issuing a sim card.

Citing a recent case in which the police had caught an unauthorised retailer of Reliance Telecom, Kumar has said, informal enquiries had been brought against other telecom companies too. According to Kumar, the retailer had sold another 490 sim cards of Tata Indicom on forged IDs.

The letter further points that owing to illegal nexus of the distributors and employees of the service providers no worthwhile verification was being made.

While suggesting that DoT maintain a central database of all subscribers that maintains biometric parameters akin to the Aadhar system, a string of short-term measures could be adopted.

According to the current rules, pre-activated sim cards attract a penalty of 50,000 each in addition to an immediate disconnection of the mobile connection. Kumar has requested that DoT and the Trai should be requested to impose heavy penalties for deterrence and exercise stricter control.

Oh boy, how I wish there were some way of verifying the identity of a subscriber say, for example, a verified Identity Card. Then the Telecom Service Providers wouldn't have to waste their time and money on verifying their subscribers' identities!
