New sim card rules

New Sim Card Rules 2023
SIM Dealer Verification: Anyone who wishes to sell sim cards and is a sim card dealer need to undergo a verification and they will also have to get the sim cards registered while selling them, it is the telecom operators' responsible for police verification. Failure to comply may result in a fine of Rs 10 lakh.
Demographic Data Collection: Customers who purchase SIM cards for their existing numbers need to submit their Aadhaar and demographic data.
