MNA Science & Tech Desk: State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Tarana Halim on Thursday said a person will now be allowed to register maximum 20 mobile SIM cards against one national identity card.

The decision was taken at a meeting held at the Secretariat where Prime Minister’s ICT Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy was present, Tarana said while talking to news agency.

Earlier in September, Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) revised its previous decision allowing a person to register highest five SIM cards against one NID card.

The state minister also said the 4G mobile phone service will be launched in the country by December next. “All the facilities, including tech neutrality, will be ensured for the mobile phone operators,” she said.
