1 month deadline to Afghan telecom firms for collecting unregistered SIM cards

The Ministry of Telecommunication and Information Technology (MTIT) have given a month-long deadline to telecom firms for collecting unregistered SIM cards.

Failing to recover such cards would result to fines and license revocation of the firms, said officials on Tuesday.

The Afghanistan Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (ATRA) deputy head Khair Mohammad Faizi said SIM cards of Etisalat, MTN and Roshan are still sold in the market despite a string of warnings from the ministry, adding a fine of 50mn AFN is imposed on each of the firms.

The Afghan Wireless Communication Company (AWCC) has collected unauthorized SIMs, under an agreement with MTIT.
