New System to Block and Track Lost Phones to be Implemented by Government


Revolutionary Tracking System Launched by Indian Government for Mobile Phone User!

The Indian government has launched an innovative tracking system that enables mobile phone users to block and track their lost or stolen devices from anywhere in the country. This new initiative is set to provide mobile phone users with much-needed peace of mind, knowing that their devices can be tracked and located in the event of theft or loss.

The Centre for the Department of Telematics (CDoT) has successfully piloted the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) system in several telecom circles, including Delhi, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and the Northeast. Now, the system is ready for a nationwide rollout, according to a DoT official. The CEIR system is set to launch across India on May 17, allowing people to block and track their lost mobile phones. Rajkumar Upadhyay, CEO and chairman of the Project Board at CDoT, confirmed that the technology is ready for deployment and will be implemented across India in the coming quarter. With the CEIR system in place, mobile phone users can rest assured that their lost or stolen devices can be located and blocked to prevent unauthorized access.

CDoT has made significant strides in enhancing its capabilities to detect cloned mobile phones on all telecom networks. As per Government regulations, it is now mandatory for all mobile devices sold in India to disclose their unique 15-digit IMEI number. Thanks to CDoT’s innovative features, this process has become more streamlined and efficient.

The mobile networks will be equipped with a database of authorized IMEI numbers to prevent unauthorized mobile phones from accessing their network.
