Unregistered SIM cards to be blocked for 2days each week till September ending

The NCA has informed the public that beginning September 5, 2022, unregistered SIM cards will be blocked for two days each week until September ends.

According to the NCA, mobile network subscribers in Ghana who have not yet re-registered their SIM cards or have only completed stage one re-registration will face punitive actions such as the suspension of all incoming calls and data services for 48 hours (2 days) per week.

The NCA also stated in a press release that the sim blocking will be done in weekly batches as a second punitive measure.

The first punitive measure involves re-routing all outgoing calls so that a message is played before all calls are processed every day.

In a letter dated September 2, 2022, signed by the Director-General, the NCA reminded the MNOs of the registration exercise which is ending on September 30, 2022.

“Please be informed that the punitive measures which were discussed at the meeting at the NCA on 3rd August 2022, were compiled and reviewed following your submission. After a comprehensive review and with the approval of the Honourable Minister for Communications, Please find below the punitive measures.

MNOs [Mobile Network Operators] shall divide the unregistered SIMs into five batches for the purpose of implementing this punitive measure.

“These measures shall exclude blocking of SMS to give defaulting subscribers the opportunity to initiate registration if they so wish. Subscribers who fully register their SIM Cards within the period they have been blocked will only be unblocked by the MNOs after 48 hours to avoid the MNOs tampering with their systems intermittently,”

Below are some of the reactions from Ghanaians following NCA’s latest approach to get all active sim cards registered.
