Most of us don’t know how many Mobile SIMs are registered on our name. There are chances that someone have succeeded to obtain a SIM registered with your name without your knowledge and such unknown SIMs can also be used by criminals and terrorists. Keeping your security as priority, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has developed a SIM Information System to address associated risks on security and to ensure subscription regulations in cellular sector.
Now You can Track how many SIMs are registered with your name via internet or by just sending a free SMS. And you will get a quick sms reply from the service which will contain number of registered SIMs of each mobile network on your CNIC. The objective of the project is to provide a consumer-based facility to mobile subscribers in Pakistan by which they would be able to find out the total number of SIMs registered against their respective CNIC number with each mobile operator, and can block extra unknown SIMs in time to protect themselves from any liability.
With this system, you can not only check SIMs on your name but on the name of your friends and other family members.
