Planning to curb all kinds of telephony crimes, cellular phone operators in the country are going to start trial of biometrics SIM registration system tomorrow.
Bangladesh as the second country has taken the initiative to introduce the human body-based indentifying system to ensure the ownership of mobile phone number, said officials of posts and telecommunications division.
State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Division (PTD) Tarana Halim would visit the trial system at the customer care centers of different operators in the city.
Meanwhile, all the operators have completed their necessary preparation for the trial, as they have been directed to run the system commercially from December 16 next. To this end, the PTD has already ensured the operators' access to national ID database of election commission (EC) to verify the identity. The operators inked deal with the EC on November 3 for the access.
