Penalty on mo­bile ser­vice providers

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - IN & AROUND -

AM­BALA: The Tele­com En­force­ment Re­source and Mon­i­tor­ing ( TERM) Cell im­posed a penalty of Rs 50,000 each on mo­bile ser­vice providers, Video­con Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion and Tata Te­le­ser­vices, here on Fri­day for lapse in mo­bile tele­phony.

Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice Shashank Anand said it was the first in­stance when the penalty had been im­posed on ser­vice providers. He said a com­plaint was lodged with the po­lice against mo­bile phone SIM card re­tail­ers Yo­gesh Ku­mar Bhutani of Bhutani Mo­bile World and Su­mit Chugh of Manish Gen­eral Store for not ad­her­ing to the DOT guide­lines.

They didn't prop­erly ver­ify the an­tecedents of new cus­tomers and is­sued both the SIMS on fake Ids.

An FIR has also been reg­is­tered at Am­bala Sadar po­lice sta­tion.
