On May 9, the Telecom Department had directed telecom companies like Jio, Airtel and Vi to close 28,220 mobile bands. Besides, instructions were also given to re-verify about 20 lakh mobile connections. The reason behind this is online fraud happening through mobile handsets.

Due to this reason SIM cards will be closed

The Modi government at the Center has decided to ban SIM cards to remove cyber crime and online fraud from the country. Under the plan, online fraudsters will be identified with the help of government and private agencies. According to the report, telecom companies will reverify the mobile connection and SIM card, after which they can block them. Telecom companies have been given the task to ban fake mobiles and SIM cards in the next 15 days.
