How to know whose name the lost SIM card was registered under
When your SIM is ever lost or stolen, you may need to know who registered the SIM to cancel or reactivate it again.
If you do not know in whose name the lost SIM was registered, then try writing the last four digits of the possible ID card from another mobile number in the above-described way. If there is information about that SIM number in the reply message list, you can later withdraw the SIM with that ID card.
But if that SIM is not registered in the ID card given by you then directly go to customer care and tell your problem. From there you can deactivate or reactivate your SIM through verification.
How to Cancel SIM Registration
When someone else’s SIM has been registered with your NID card, the responsibility will fall on you if the SIM user commits any crime by using that SIM. So if the SIM used by someone else is registered with your ID card, the registration should be canceled.
The registration can be canceled with the information of the ID card with which the SIM was registered. For that call customer care from your SIM and tell them the reason for canceling your SIM registration.
To cancel the registration, customer care will ask for your name, parent’s name, NID card number, last recharge amount, and balance to verify your ownership. SIM registration will be canceled as per your wish if all information is correct.
If you find any mobile number registered on your name under your NID but you are not aware of that or you are not using that number, contact the mobile operator to deregister the SIM card.
