Breaking News : DoT directive puts mobile players in Neast in spot
Advertisement
#1
Guwahati/Shillong, Nov 5 (PTI) The Department of Telecom's directive to mobile phone companies in the Northeast to obtain a new set of documents from subscribers has put the service providers in a spot.

The companies fear if strictly implemented, the October 20 directive may result in loss of a huge chunk of the 20 million-odd customer base in the northeast region.

The directive, similar to one issued in Jammu & Kashmir, was issued following concern expressed by security agencies over militants using phones for their subversive activities with pre-paid connections available easily.

"The new directive from the DoT has forced us to ask the customers to furnish details which include voter's identity card, which is non-existent in the region, passport or PAN card," a spokesperson of a leading mobile company said here today.
