PMO Speeds Up SIM Re-registration for Government Employees



PMO Speeds Up SIM Re-registration for Government Employees

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is pushing for an acceleration of SIM card re-registration, with the deadline set for April 30.

Despite a case on this issue being heard in the Supreme Court, the government is targeting civil servants by encouraging them to come forward and complete this exercise.

Starting today April 3rd, the PMO, in collaboration with the Information and Communication Technologies Authority (ICTA), has set up booths at the Sir Harilal Vaghjee Hall, where representatives from the three telecommunication operators (MyT, Emtel, and MTML) will be present to assist civil servants in re-registering their cards on the spot.

This exercise will take place over three days, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, and from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 4th & 5th.

Those interested must bring their ID card and proof of address.

Supervising officers have been instructed to “encourage officers under your purview to re-register their SIM cards before the deadline of April 30, 2024.”

Only civil servants and employees of parastatal bodies will have access to the Vaghjee Hall for the re-registration process.

Members of the public should go to the operators’ branches.

SIM card holders can re-register online or with their operator. In addition to the aforementioned documents, the card owner will also need to provide a portrait photo, which will be stored by the ICTA under the Data Protection Act.

After the end of April deadline, any unregistered SIM card will no longer be operational, unless the Supreme Court rules against this re-registration exercise.
