FAISALABAD: A mobile phone company was ordered to pay damages by the District Consumer Court (DCC) on the charge of issuing nine illegal connections on the CNIC of a consumer. According to police officials, Wapda Officer Colony resident Chaudhary Nazeer Ahmad filed an application before the district coordination committee (DCC) contending that he had got a mobile connection and submitted a photocopy of his CNIC. The company issued mobile connections to 9 other consumers on his CNIC illegally. He informed the company and requested that the connections be cancelled but the company was reluctant to do so. After hearing the arguments of both parties, Judge Ejaz Ahmad Buttar ordered the general manager of the mobile company’s consumer services center to pay damages of Rs30,000 to the complainant besides disconnecting all the illegal mobile connection issued on his CNIC.
