Mobile Service Providers have asked mobile phone users to get their connections registered in their names. This was done at the behest of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC).

The TRC had informed Mobile Service Providers that the mobile phone connections they had provided must be registered in the names of their users.

Mobile Service Providers said that the users could ascertain whether their mobile phone connections were registered by dialing #132# and if they were not registered they could get them registered at the consumer care centre of the particular Service Provider by producing their identity card, driving licence or the passport.

TRC Director General Anusha Pelpita said that the TRC had earlier informed the public that all mobile phone connections should be registered. This is in order to prevent nefarious activities being committed by means of mobile phones. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    I thought that you need to register any connection with the production of your NIC. Can we get illegal connections?

    Concerned Wednesday, 28 May 2014 06:09 AM

    Usually when a connection is issued the owner's credentials are verified by checking the NIC. Without NIC no phone connection can be obtained. So then why this big issue now?

    Yehiya Wednesday, 28 May 2014 01:35 AM

    first TRC & mobile phone providers must respond to emails. Never ever reply to emails. This is the worse scenario. These department must work with civilized manner.

    TRC are total idiots who make decisions on the hoof without any long term or short term effects being taken into consideration!!!!!!!

    Concerned Wednesday, 28 May 2014 07:03 AM

    Nefarious means flagrantly wicked or impious. This TRC news gives the impression that almost all the nefarious activities in Sri Lanka are conducted through and with the use of cell phones. Now were the UNP MP's attacked with mobile phones? Wasn't that a nefarious activity? Was the murder of a foreigner and the rape of his girl friend in Tangalle done with mobile phones? Who is cheating whom?

    This is a good move, although it was being asked few years back. Operators mustn't allow more than two sims under a name too in similar product category.

    how many times are we asked to register via DM Android App

    Tele Operator Wednesday, 28 May 2014 01:21 PM

    All personal details will now be in one database in a location decided by the authorities. They can snoop on anyone anytime and at their pleasure. Do not assume what you speak with another person is only confined to the two. So mums the word on mobiles and thank god youll save a lot of money. via DM iPad app

    Sherlock Tuesday, 27 May 2014 05:38 PM

    Does the TRC want the person who stole my phone (if stolen) or a person who has my phone to know my personal details like Name, Address and NIC number?????????
