India allows Nepali visitors to get Indian SIM

KATHMANDU: Nepalis visiting the southern neighbor will now be able to obtain Indian SIM cards.

India’s Department of Telecommunications issued a circular to its telecom operators on Monday, stating that mobile connections can be provided to Nepali and Bhutanese citizens visiting India if they present a citizenship certificate, voter ID card, or a limited validity photo-identity certificate issued by their respective missions in India.

According to the circular, the validity of such connections shall not exceed three months.

The decision comes as a great relief to Nepalis visiting India who were facing inconveniences due to a lack of mobile connection.
