JK Prepaid Mobile Recharge: Police withdraws its earlier order

Bureau Report

Agence India Press


Srinagar: Police on Friday rescinded its order in which it had asked mobile recharge vendors to maintain record book of customers with particulars including name, cell number and address on daily basis.


A police statement said, “Instructions issued to recharge vendors to maintain records, of customers have been rescinded, following assurances by the mobile service providers to provide such details centrally.”


“Accordingly, the district Police authorities, have been asked not to collect any details viz-a-viz the subject matter, henceforth, from Recharge Vendors,” it added.


Pertinently, the new order would have made it mandatory for only the owner of a cell phone to re-charge his or her phone. “It was cumbersome for women to carry identity cards every time she visits a vendor and leave address and charging details. It was usurping of very private space despite the fact we have provided all details at the time of application of cellular service,” said Nuzhat Jan, a student of Nawa Kadal College in Srinagar.


Representatives of six telecom companies — Airtel, Aircell, Vodafone, Reliance, Tata Indicom and Idea — have agreed to provide details to police. There is a single window system offered by all the six cellular companies where all the data is feed to a single server making it easy to collect details of charging and phone calls.


Kashmir STD-PCO Owners Association president Bashir Ahmad welcomed the decision. “We thank the IGP for the new direction. It was not possible for us to be a cop and collect details from woman and I-cards every day. The move shows police’s foresightedness,” said Ahmad. (AIP News)
