Poll Results: Multiple SIMs – 1 Man 80,000 SIMs

Few months back the concern over multiple SIMs per CNIC was at its peak and all including interior minister, authorities and cellular companies tabled some recommendations on the matter.

At TelecomPK we conducted a poll on how many SIMs must be allowed per CNIC. The matter is silent at the government level as for now, while the poll results are:

On the same subject, across the border in India a man is found with 80,000 SIMs.

Rohan Samarajiva at LIRNEasia writes:

I thought the Pakistani man who thought he had 2 SIMs but found 57 had been issued in his name was a story. But India does better, according to NDTV.

A man in Mumbai’s suburb Thane region was found with 80,000 Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) cards. The SIM cards were found at the residence of Anwar Ansari, in Bhiwandi area of Thane.

According to reports, Mr Ansari used to run a racket that facilitated international calls. Mr Ansari has been arrested and the police say they are investigating the case further.

The guy was not single-handedly trying to drive up Indian numbers. Appears the grey market in international termination is alive and well in Thane.
