Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) would allow only 15 SIM cards under a single national identity (NID) card.


As per the recent BTRC decision, the regulator will deactivate the additional SIM cards soon.


BTRC Vice Chairman Subrata Roy Maitra confirmed this on Sunday.


The telecom regulator has urged subscribers to deactivate additional SIM cards against one NID from the respective customer care centres.


Besides, BTRC is collecting data of such SIM cards registered with one NID to take action.


On June 20, 2016, BTRC decided that 20 SIM cards can be registered against one NID card and later it reduced the number to five on August, 2017.


On October 24, 2017, the commission revised its decision and set the number at 15.
