Get the SIM blocked and go to a Reliance store and say the original owner (some friend or relative) cannot come as he is out of town or no more and give some proof that you actually are the owner like last 2-3 o/g calls or SMSes, recharges, handset IMEI on which the SIM was last used etc. they can help by making a new registration on the number.. it all depends on your behaviour and tackling the situation.

I doubt if you will get a new SIM if you are not the owner. Earlier they were lax and it resulted in lots of frauds. Now they are strict, the owner can easily get a replacement SIM. No FIR required. If you are not the owner, you cannot get a replacement SIM even with FIR.

Which operator? If it’s so easy to get a duplicate SIM, better to avoid that operator.

That’s how it should be. It’s the same with Vodafone.

I think the solution has been provided already. I went to Airtel store few days ago to get a name change done on one prepaid sim I use. What I was suggested is that they do not offer transfer for pre-paid sims. One solution they had is to get the prepaid sim converted to postpaid first and then show them proofs of operation, for this they said they will ask for two or three recent recharge details on the number and then details of last few calls made.

But where you would be stuck is converting the sim from Prepaid to Postpaid. Even for this they ask for some ID/Address proof. So in case you can get hold of the original owner you can get some ID proofs.

naah, it is all dependent on OP’s power to persuade the executives..
I had got a new connection corrected to my name sitting at home. Just a few forms filling and done.

Few things I want to ask

Sim card was taken around 10 years ago. Without giving my documents . I use the number regularly,done many recharges.
I do have the mobile bill (IMEI number ) . but I don’t think Reliance will help me to block the imei without confirming my ownership.

what is the process of blocking my handset though imei ?

Though I had registered the number online on reliance portal and the actuall document holder name was showing on the portal(I do not remember his name) after login with OTP. but now when I try to login its says password invalid and asking for OTP. which I can not give.

Only way left if. R Gsm can help me to get my number by verifying only last recharges ,frequent called number etc .

Switch to postpaid. Use the sim for 3 months and then port out…
