NCA Finally Hints Short Code To Verify Number Of SIM Cards Linked To A Ghana Card

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has hinted that plans are underway to finally introduce a short code that Ghanaians can access to check the number of SIM cards connected to their Ghana card.

According to an NCA post of Facebook, the short code is in the testing mode and will be operational by the end of April when all due diligence are completed.

They added that, when the short code is made operational, owners of SIMs do not need to visit Telco to verify the associated cards to their SIMs. They can easily access that by dialing the code and following prompts for verification.

“The NCA and the Telcos have already been actively working on a short code for Individual Subscribers to verify the number of SIMs associated with a Ghana card; you just type the shortcode on your phone, and after a verification process using your Ghana Card pin, the number of SIMs associated with the Ghana card will be displayed.

There will be no need for Subscribers to physically go to the Telco to verify the same when the shortcode is operational, by the end of April 2023, after the testing has been completed and approved.”, National Communications Authority, Ghana posted on their official page on Facebook.

The Ghana Card has officially become the only Identification Document that  is used for individual SIM Card Registrations as per regulations of the Ghana Identity Register.
