NEW DELHI -- The Supreme Court on Monday gave the Centre two weeks of time to implement a mechanism to ensure proper verification of all mobile phone subscribers while issuing SIM cards.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice of India JS Khehar said that it is important to remove fictitious subscribers for a crackdown on fraudulent activities.

The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Lokniti Foundation gave suggestion on the mobile phone verification issue and said that there was a grave risk to the national security because of lack of verification of mobile phone subscribers.
