Hyderabad, Sep 27: “Asking mobile numbers while paying bills at shopping malls and shops is against rules,” the IT department has warned.
“They obtain our mobile numbers and give them to the call centre. As the mobile numbers reach cyber thieves, several people lose money in lacs,” a consumer had complained with IT officials.
As personal details are getting sold like goods, customers are facing severe problems. “The Decathlon staff had urged that a personal mobile number is mandatory to pay bills,” said Vijay Gopal, a resident of Tarnaka, who purchased items at Decathlon situated at Malakapete.
The IT department has reacted that such information is sensitive and is against information technology regulations.
