NCA shortcode to verify phone numbers linked to Ghana Card.
The National Communication Authority (NCA) has said that it is now collaborating with operators to create a shortcode that members of the public can use to determine whether their numbers have been linked to their Ghana cards.
The code is designed for individual users to use to check if their numbers have been linked, the NCA stated in a Facebook post.
According to the NCA, anyone can use the shortcode on their phone, and after a verification procedure, the SIMs connected to the Ghana Card will be shown.
A section of the post read “The NCA and the Telcos have already been actively working on a short code for Individual Subscribers to verify the number of SIMs associated with a Ghana card; you just type the shortcode on your phone, and after a verification process using your Ghana Card pin, the number of SIMs associated with the Ghana card will be displayed.
There will be no need for Subscribers to physically go to the Telco to verify the same when the shortcode is operational, by the end of April 2023, after the testing has been completed and approved.”

The Ghana Card is the sole form of identification that can be used to register a single SIM card, as stated in National Identity Registry Regulation 7(l).
Recently, there have been more reports of numbers connected to people’s Ghana Cards, and many have called for a uniform and user-friendly mechanism that will enable them to confirm the numbers connected to their Cards.
Using a shortcode, subscribers will be able to check the number of SIM cards connected to their Ghana Cards, according to NCA, which revealed this in a social media post.
