Fresh system to show SIMs issued against one CNIC - PTA

Under the new system, a cellular company issues a non-active SIM to a customer who is required to dial 789 (through that non-active SIM) and the call is diverted to the call centre of the operator concerned.

After online verification of subscriber's antecedents from the Nadra, the SIM is activated in the name of the verified customer.

In case of incorrect information the consumer is asked to contact the customer service centre of the mobile operator or the Nadra swift centre. An operator can issue a maximum of 10 connections on one CNIC.
