The National Communications Authority (NCA) has announced that in collaboration with the Telcos, it has begun working on a short code for Individual Subscribers to verify the number of SIMs associated with a Ghana card.
The NCA in statement on Facebook explaining how the verification will work said “You just type the short code on your phone, and after a verification process using your Ghana card pin, the number of SIMs associated with the Ghana card will be displayed.”
It added that there will be no need for Subscribers to physically go to the Telco to verify same when the short code is operational, by the end of April, 2023, after the testing has been completed and approved.
Ghana begun a nationwide SIM card re-registration exercise in October 2021.
The exercise is meant to build a SIM database with integrity and assist in curbing fraud as well as secure SIM Card-based transactions.
