UID To Be The Basis For Mobile Subscriber Verification
Posted by pratyushkp
Before issuance of mobile numbers and SIM cards a proof of the proper subscriber identification norms and paperwork is a must. But Indian Security agencies very frequently encounter the problem of the lack of proof by the willing subscribers. UID number project may prove to be a solution for this long standing problem as the UID number will serve to be the definitive proof for subscriber verification. This number is safer than any other document and will become the basis of issuing mobile connections in the future.
According to a newspaper report, DoT secretary R Chandrashekhar said, “Serious consideration is being given to make UID the fundamental basis of subscriber verification. This will mean that the present arrangement will continue for a period of time but once UID is up and running the transition could occur very quickly and nationwide.”
