The Department of Telecommunications has launched a website to report on the theft or loss of mobile phones. Through this new website, mobile users will be able to easily trace mobile phones. The Department of Telecommunications has launched the CEIR (Central Equipment Identity Register) portal. This platform has been first launched for Maharashtra as a pilot project. Later this project will be made available for mobile users across the country.
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has been working on this pilot project since 2017. In this project, the Global IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is being fed, with the help of which the cloned IMEI can be traced. The Central Government announced this pilot project in 2017, under which users will be able to report their lost mobile on the CEIR platform. Based on the database recorded on this portal, the mobile phone can be traced in case of theft or lost. The Ministry of Telecommunication started feeding the global IMEI number of 15 digits in this database from 2017. On this platform, users will be able to block their lost or stolen mobile number, due to which the users do not get any financial loss. Nowadays, users keep many types of personal information in their smartphones, from bank details. In this case, the portals were stolen after the launch
