Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) said a customer can purchase a maximum of two mobile SIMs without National Identity (NID) card.

To procure SIM without NID, a subscriber will have to submit all necessary information so that s/he can be identified, BTRC vice chairman Subrata Roy said.

Within six months, such customers have to register the SIM against NID card, he added.

According to previous rule of BTRC, a customer could buy maximum 15 SIMs only after showing NID card.
