After the advent of the internet, whole new online world is created and traditional cafes some turned into cyber cafes where anyone can come and have the facility of internet for limited or unlimited period by giving some charges to the owners of the cyber cafes. Gradually internet use increased, which resultantly increased the rate of cyber crime. As, world was not ready for these circumstances, these crimes made huge loss to the world of different levels. Then regulation of this crime was started. While combating with cybercrimes many hurdles are seen regarding the location of the criminal, later it was solved through IP address. But another challenge which was faced by the law enforcement agencies was when any crime was done while using internet from any cyber café. Because in this situation, person may escape as very rarely cyber cafes are managed and regulated to keep the data of the user. Later cyber cafes were regulated like in Pakistan and India but that is again not beneficial because still the powers and authorities are with the owners of the cyber cafes. This paper proposes an infrastructure to regulate the cyber cafes and access to internet through central authority of the State. The system proposed the internet access regulatory authority to work with the help of telecom sector by using SIM cards to give the permission to the user to access internet at any cyber café.
