New Delhi: Phone suddenly stolen from home or street? Phone nowhere to be found? An FIR should be registered at the local police station. But now you can find your lost or stolen phone yourself. The central government will help locate a lost or stolen phone.. According to sources, a service or system to help track lost or stolen phones is being introduced by the central government this week.
Department of Technology Development, Central Govt Telematics Mobile Trucking Industry Center (Telematics Industry Center) has come up with a pilot project. Trial runs of the scheme are underway in Delhi, Maharashtra, Karnataka and North East India. This service will be launched across the country. According to sources, There is a plan to introduce the CIER system across the country on May 17.
Rajkumar Upadhyay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the project said that this state-of-the-art technology to locate lost or stolen mobiles is fully ready. This service will soon be launched across the country. With the help of this technology, common people can block the lost phone and track the lost phone. You can check whether the mobile phone is cloned or not through any telecom network.
The government has made it mandatory to mention the 15-digit Unique Identifier Number or IMEI number on the back of the phone when selling phones in India. In this modern technology all mobile networks have IMEI number. This will allow telecom networks to see if any unauthorized mobile phones are being used in their area. Along with the IMEI number, the mobile number to be connected is also known to the telecom operators. As a result, lost or stolen mobile phones can be easily traced with CEIR technology.
Recently Karnataka Police has recovered more than 2500 lost or stolen mobile phones using CEIR system.
