Easy to find lost and stolen mobile phones,started CEIR new service started in Delhi.

Union Minister for Communications, Electronic and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad started the web portal to block and track stolen mobiles in Delhi. That is, if someone’s mobile phone is stolen or lost, then they can share their information with the police to track it.

A pilot project of this web portal started.

 

For information, let us know that based on the pilot project of this web portal, it was started in Mumbai, which was a huge success, after that it has now been started in Delhi.

The objective of this project is to reduce incidents of phone theft and block stolen mobile phones on all mobile networks. Not only this, lost or stolen mobile phones can be tracked and traced again through IMEI number. Apart from this, the motive is to stop the use of stolen mobiles and to stop running through fake IMEI.

 

Users of Delhi-NCR will be able to request from this portal (www.ceir.gov.in) to stop their lost and stolen phones. Not only this, information traceable to the phone can be shared with police officers. Also, the recovered phone can also be opened (unlocked).

The project is supported by the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) system. The Department of Telecommunications has introduced this system to remove mobile security, theft, and other problems.

 

Telecom Secretary Anshu Prakash said, Delhi’s telecom customers whose phone is stolen or lost can login on the web portal from today, they will have to go to the portal and lodge their complaint and copy the complaint filed with the police and Your identity card will have to be uploaded.

Based on this, the mobile will be blocked. If someone has used this phone, then it can be found on the basis of the tower signal. From this, the police can also recover the mobile.

What is CEIR

With the aim to curtail the counterfeit mobile phone market and discourage mobile phone theft, protect consumer interest and facilitate law enforcement authorities for lawful interception, DoT intends to implement Central Equipment Identity Registry (CEIR) that connects to the IMEI database of all the mobile Operators.
 However, CEIR acts as a central system for all network operators to share blacklisted mobile devices so that devices blacklisted in one network will not work on other networks even if the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card in the device is changed.
