PTA to Develop SIM Information System

Mobile sector of Pakistan has observed an astonishing growth since last five years. Subscribers have been purchasing mobile SIMs via mobile operators’ service outlets, retailers and authorized franchises.

There had been no restriction on number of SIMs to be registered under a specific CNIC as a result – subscribers bought/registered more than one SIMs against their CNICs. The situation has lead to a security concern situation where a SIM registered under one subscriber(s) is being used by another un-identified user.

In order to address the potential associated risks, PTA has decided to develop a SIM information system by using which the mobile subscribers would be able to find out the total number of SIM(s) registered against their respective CNIC numbers with each mobile operator of the country.

The system would facilitate mobile subscribers to block those SIM(s) which presently are not under their usage.

The aim is to develop a software based system that would provide an Internet and SMS based interface to end-users in
order to retrieve the registered mobile SIM(s) information.

In order to facilitate the consumer, an SMS based system would also be developed empowering consumer to use his mobile phone for accessing required information. The system would provide the ability to send & receive SMS against a pre-defined number.

For the purpose, PTA has asked for bids to develop such a software based system. Interested companies can look into requirments here

  • i was just thinking to send an email to PTA to form an info center like 789 as there are thousands of sims are activated without specified` customers consent. indeed this kind of service will be very helpful for customers but mobile` Companies will not `be happy upon this act.

  • PTA should make sure that this service is offered FREE OF COST.
    If a person finds that his CNIC is being mis-used by any other, then he should be able to get that number blocked immediately without paying anything. Because this is all due to fault of the mobile operator.

  • What a joke! PTA asks customers to jump through hoops to register a SIM and now its saying that the data is unreliable? They are now begging people to help them verify the data! How about fixing your SIM activation system so that only legitimate SIM purchases are allowed instead of wasting people’s time!

    I sure hope the police are not taking the PTA data seriously. Even the PTA admits its database is untrustworthy!
