SIM Rule Changing from 1 January 2024 Jio Airtel BSNL Vodafone Idea - Let us tell those who buy SIM cards that from January 1, there are going to be some big changes in the rules for purchasing SIM cards. Now some new rules have to be followed before buying a SIM. Let us know what these changes are and how they will be implemented.


SIM Card New Rules from January 1, 2024


To buy a new SIM card, new rules will have to be followed from January 1, 2024. Digital KYC will have to be done when purchasing new SIM cards from next year. Currently, to buy a SIM, physical verification of the document has to be done. This process was expensive and time-consuming.


The Telecom Department (DoT) has also issued an order in this regard. According to the information revealed, after January 1, when purchasing a new SIM card, the customer will only need to get e-KYC done.


The objective of the government behind implementing the new rules for SIM is to stop fraud related to SIM cards. After the implementation of new rules and the abolition of paper-based KYC, the expenses of all telecom companies will also be reduced.


The government announced the implementation of these rules in August. There were continuous delays in implementing it. Now under the new rules, it will also be necessary to get verification of SIM card vendors done.


In recent times, cases of cyber fraud happening to people have continuously increased. Due to this people are losing their hard-earned money. The government wants to stop incidents like cyber fraud and SIM swapping.


According to media reports, the government has recently blocked 70 lakh such mobile numbers. All this was related to cyber fraud and illegal transactions.


Under the new rules, the government has made registration of franchisees, distributors, and point-of-sale (PoS) agents mandatory for all telecom companies. All telecom dealers and agents will get 12 months for registration.
