New Delhi: The government is planning to carry out a pilot project to find the actual number of mobile telephone users in the country, which according to the operators stands at 670 million now.

The decision comes amid reports that the subscriber numbers reported by the operators were incorrect and does not give a true picture of the number of actual mobile users in the country.

In a the meeting of Telecom Commission, held last week, it was decided that "...an exercise should be done on pilot basis in a representative area to know the actual number of active users as against the number of active SIMs in that area."

At present TRAI releases subscriber figures as recorded in the Home Location Register (HLR) of the telecom service providers. It gives record of total number of SIMs sold and not active subscribers.
