New initiative of Modi Government helps to easily block the lost or stolen mobile

SEP 13 (WTN) - Crores of people have mobile phones after the communication revolution in the country. At the same time after the Internet revolution, the number of smartphone users in the country has also increased very fast. According to a survey, a typical Indian person spends a lot of time with a mobile phone. Many such tasks, which you had to do earlier in the queue, now those tasks are done easily on the smartphone.

To tackle many tasks on the smartphone itself, smartphone users upload their important documents in the smartphone. At the same time, smartphone users also do banking related work in their smartphones. But when the smartphone, which is a great need of the common man, is lost or stolen again then there is a fear that due to the loss of the smartphone, the necessary documents uploaded in it may fall into the hands of a wrong person. On the other hand, one can make banking related fraud using the smartphone incorrectly.

As you know that it is very difficult to find a mobile phone after it is stolen. There are only a few lucky people in thousands who can find their lost mobile phone safe. Thousands of mobile phones are lost or stolen every day in the country. In order to enable mobile phone users to get their lost or stolen phones as soon as possible, the Modi Government has taken a big step.

Actually, the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR), which keeps a database of all the mobiles being used in the country, has been prepared. Now in case of lost or stolen mobile phone, it can be directly reported on the toll free number. The Central Equipment Identity Register has been prepared by the C-DoT. For your information, let you know that it has been started in Maharashtra Circle before, and its trial has been successful here.

People can easily block lost or stolen mobiles, to do so the government has also issued a helpline number. According to this new system, the complaint of missing or stolen phone will first have to be lodged in the police station, and an FIR has to be lodged. After registering the FIR, its information will have to be given on the number '14422'. Mobile number operators will be able to block the network of mobiles through the identification number. On changing the IMEI, the mobile will be blocked even if it matches the other IMEI. For your information, let you know that a provision of three years' punishment has also been made for changing the IMEI number.

For your information, let you know that the work of creating Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) is being done by the Department of Telecommunications since 2017. The entire database of CEIR is based on the mobile 15 digit IMEI number. As soon as a complaint is lodged in the CEIR, if the mobile is lost or stolen, the Department of Telecommunications will blacklist the IMEI number of the mobile with the concerned mobile company, due to which no mobile network will be able to work on this handset in the future. CEIR, along with mobile companies and mobile network companies, will bring lost or stolen mobiles in such a situation that it could not be used.

At the same time CEIR will also have access to GSMA's global IMEI database, so that IMEI numbers can be compared to identify fake handsets. For your information, let you know that GSMA is a global body that represents cellular operators, gear manufacturers, software and Internet companies among other entities in the telecom ecosystem. This will ensure international cooperation in handset theft cases.
