address and id proof for providing sim of airtel
dear info warriors
i want to know what type of address and id proof has been taken by airtel for providing to sim for a particular mobile number ,i already know every detail of subscriber like name ,dob,father's name ,address etc
i just want to know what type of proof has been taken by airtel like whether it was driving license or ration card or pan card etc
i filed rti in TRAI
reply came from TRAI that we can not provide information as we do not maintain such information
i filed RTI to Deptt. of Telecommunication,sanchar bhawan,n delhi
reply came from Deptt. of Telecommunication that we can not provide information as we do not maintain such information
now question is
is there any govt authority who monitors what type of proof has been taken for providing SIM
where i should file rti to know it ?
Re: address and id proof for providing sim of airtel
There is no Govt. Authroity which maintains this information.
It is only maintained by the Service Provider and can be accessed by the Security Agencies, if required.
You will not get this information if the service provider is a private operator.
Even if it is BSNL/MTNL, this information will be denied under Sec 8(1)(j) unless you can bring in larger public interest.
