Mobitel's registration system good for all

SUBSCRIBER REGISTRATION: The two Brand Ambassadors of Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel - Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardena and spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan joined the top officials of Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel and appealed to one and all to re-register the use of Mobitel Connections in an effort primarily aimed at ending the indiscriminate use of mobile phones which by now is deemed to have become a national security threat.

Once implemented, a mobile phone must only be in the possession of its registered owner, who must be able to prove ownership whenever called upon to do so.

Both Mahela Jayawardena and Muralitharan said that registration has become necessary because of many unwanted incidents that had occurred due to the non-registration of hand phones.

This method of registration is for one's own self and generally it is for the safety of the nation.

Priyantha Kariyapperuma - Director General of Sri Lanka Telecom Regulatory Commission said that new rule has been brought about to control the proper use of the mobile phones. He said that everyone must fall in line with the safety and national security in the country.

He pointed out that there were 33 mobile phones in a cell in Welikada cell and in another incident there were 55 phones in one cell.

"We are bringing regulations for the safety of one and all. Please do not misread this." Kariyapperuma further said.

The control of Mobitel connections is important for the safety of the user and for the country as well. It is also a precaution to make it safe for one's own self.

Today, the process of registration takes place flawlessly at 65 Mobitel centres located islandwide. A subscriber can walk into any of these centres.

Speaking of the significance and importance of this, Mrs Leisha de Silva Chandrasena, Chairperson, Sri Lanka Telecom Mobitel said: "As the National Mobile Services provider, we have decided to comply 100 with the directive issued by the government." She added: "we see this as an opportunity to encourage Mobitel community to be civic mended and we sincerely hope that they will not consider this as much of an inconvenience."
