Bangladesh's telecoms regulator has issued a notice calling for all SIM card holders to re verify their ID with the mobile networks.
The Post and Telecommunications Department said that SIM card holders should verify their ownership with the mobile networks either by SMS or their website.
The mobile networks will be permitted to accept National Identity Card (NID) numbers in English via text message to validate the users ID.
The mobile phone operators are due to start re-registration of SIM cards following a biometric pilot test on November 1 and will fully start from December 16.
