Srinagar: In a major discomfort to the mobile subscribers in the Valley, the Jammu and Kashmir Police directed the recharge vendors to maintain registers of prepaid subscribers who approach for recharge, while the vendors in Srinagar were refusing to provide recharge services.

“We have been told to maintain registers with complete details of those prepaid subscribers who approach us with recharge requests,” said Basharat Ahmad Bhat, a recharge vendor.

“We face lot of inconvenience due to his procedure, as complete details and verifications of prepaid phones have already been made before issuance of SIM cards to the users by various service providers,” Bhat said.

“So we declined to recharge their connections on the police direction for proper verification of the phone users before each recharge,” he added.

City police Chief Ashiq Hussain Bukhari told Agence India Press, that the directions had been issued to prevent misuse of prepaid connections.

“The service providers have been asked to furnish details every fortnight of various recharges made through them,” Bukhari said.

“This has also been done in case of renewal of Internet connections here,” he added.

However, the subscribers ridiculed the police order.

“I have taken prepaid mobile phone connections with proper documents for my family. The new instructions mean we have to queue up before a recharge vendor time and again to recharge or connections,” Abdul Raheem, a subscriber said.

Vendors in Srinagar were denying recharge services to the users. “Till the order is revoked we will not resume our recharge services.

We have to get complete details and format for the new procedure. We do not want to be in trouble,” said Nisar Ahmad, a vendor at Lal Chowk.

During 2010 turmoil, SMS service was banned in Jammu and Kashmir on prepaid phones, which is still operational, while in 2010 all the prepaid cell phone services were temporarily withdrawn in the state citing security reasons. The services were restored after Chief Minister Omar Abdullah intervened in the matter. (AIP News)
