No SIM to Be Sold Without Biometric System Verification After August 1st, 2014

No SIM to Be Sold Without Biometric System Verification After August 1st, 2014
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has announced that no SIM will be sold or activated throughout Pakistan without biometric verification of customers starting August 1st, 2014.

PTA said that SIM activations through 789 will discontinue and SIMs will only be registered through biometric verification.

How to Get New SIM After August 1st?

For those who are still wondering, here is how you will be able to buy new SIMs after August 1st, 2014:

Customer will have to show his/her CNIC.
The Customer Service Representative/Franchise Representative/Retailer will check the CNIC for SIMs already issued. If 5 SIMs have already been issued on the respective CNIC, no further action can be taken.
CNIC with more than 5 registered SIMs (of any operator) can not purchase more SIMs.
Customer can check the registered SIMs against his/her CNIC by sending 13 digit CNIC number to 668. This will return the operator wise connection count for the submitted CNIC.
In the case that 5 SIMs have not been issued on the respective CNIC, the details are entered into the system and customer will be asked to put thumb on the biometric machine.
Customer’s thumb print (and/or Index Finger and Thumb of both Left and Right hand) will then be verified by the system, through NADRA.
Once verified, new, pre-activated SIM will be handed over to the customer
It merits mentioning here that SIM replacement of old connections will also be done through biometric verification of SIMs.
