Pazhany Rangasamy, with over 30 years of legal experience, is contesting the re-registration of SIM cards by filing a constitutional complaint before the Supreme Court.

He argues that this process breaches the Constitution and should be invalidated.

The 2023 regulations mandate all SIM card holders to re-register by April 30, 2024, or face deactivation.

Rangasamy’s complaint targets the State, Minister Deepak Balgobin, and several entities in the telecom sector as co-defendants.

He objects to providing a color photo for re-registration, citing concerns about data protection.

Rangasamy believes the regulations not only infringe on his rights but also those of his clients and friends.

He expresses worries about political surveillance due to lack of clarity in the regulations.

Seeking nullification, he urges the Supreme Court to overturn the 2023 IT regulations and National Identity Card Rules 2024.

The case, represented by Me Sanjeev Teeluckdharry, will be heard on February 22. Another challenge by Rama Valayden and Ivor Tan Yan will be presented on February 15.
