New Sim Card Rules 2022: Big relief has been given by the central government to travelers going abroad. The Department of Telecom (DoT) has changed the rules of SIM cards in India. Due to this customers with international roaming will get a lot of convenience than before.
Based on the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the Department of Telecommunications has given the green signal to change the rules of SIM cards.
Under the new rules, the terms and conditions for issuing NOC (No Objection Certificate) on the sale of international roaming SIM cards, global calling cards to foreign operators in India have been changed.
Due to these new rules, Indian citizens will get a lot of benefits. Apart from this, it will be mandatory to provide customer care service, contact details, tariff plan information on getting NOC. The Telecom Department has also provided billing information for redressal of customer complaints, which will help in the redressal of complaints.
New rule for keeping number of SIM cards
The Telecom Department has reduced the limit for using SIM. In December last year, the Department of Telecommunications had announced that a user cannot hold more than 9 SIM cards. Along with this, the user was given 45 days to get the verification of more than 9 SIMs.
The Telecom Department has discontinued the exemption of having more than 9 SIMs. For those users who do not accept this, then their SIM will be closed forever. This step of the department will help in curbing online fraud.
Along with this, people will also get rid of the problem of fake calls. The Telecom Department has allowed all citizens to have a maximum of 9 SIMs. On the other hand, in northeastern states such as Assam, citizens are allowed to have a maximum of 6 SIMs.
