Recently, there have been more reports of numbers connected to people’s Ghana Cards, and many have called for a uniform and user-friendly mechanism that will enable them to confirm the numbers connected to their Cards.
Using a short code, subscribers will be able to check the number of SIM cards connected to their Ghana Cards, according to NCA, which revealed this in a social media post.
You may simply enter the short code on your phone, and following a verification process using your Ghana card pin, the number of SIMs linked with the Ghana card will be displayed. The short code has already been actively developed by the NCA and the Telcos for Individual Subscribers.
There would be no need to wait in line at the numerous telecom service centers for verification, according to the NCA, who stated that the shortcode will be ready by the end of April.
After the testing is finished and approved, the shortcode will be active by the end of April 2023, eliminating the requirement for subscribers to physically visit the telco to verify the same.
In an effort to “clean the country’s internet of fraud, monitor, and track down those who use their phones for illicit activities,” according to vice president Mahamudu Bawumia, the Ministry of Communication started the SIM re-registration process in October 2021.
