Government Launched Web Portal CEIR, to track your Lost or Stolen Phone


If your mobile phone is lost or stolen, the government will help you find it.  Communications minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Friday launched a web portal in Mumbai, which will help users locate their stolen or lost mobile phones. For this, the Department of Telecommunications has started a project named Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR). The project has been launched with the objective of blocking lost or stolen phones on all mobile networks, discouraging theft and detecting such phones.

All mobiles have a unique IMEI number for their identification. This number is reprogrammable (changes can be made), which causes the fraudster to reprogram it. This leads to cloning of IMEI and multiple phones are used on the same IMEI number. According to the Telecommunications Department, there are many cases of cloned/duplicate IMEI handsets till date.
If such IMEI numbers are blocked, then those whose mobile has been stolen, they will have to be troubled. Because of this there is a need to get rid of phones with duplicate and fake IMEI. The CEIR website project has been launched for this problem. Apart from this, it will also help in security, theft and other problems.

The main objectives of the CEIR project.

Block lost or stolen phones on all mobile networks to discourage mobile phone theft.

Lost or stolen mobile phone detection facility.

Preventing mobiles with duplicate and fake IMEI in the network.

To stop the use of stolen mobiles.

Reduce the health risks of users with control over the use of stolen mobiles.

Reduce the use of stolen mobiles, improve the quality of service and reduce call drop.
If your mobile phone is lost or stolen, then first of all FIR will have to be lodged with the police station. After that, call the helpline number 14422 and inform the telecommunications department. After verification, the department will blacklist the phone, so that your lost or stolen phone will not be used further. Apart from this, if someone tries to use the mobile by installing another sim, the service provider will identify the new user and inform the police. The facility is currently being launched as a pilot projector in Maharashtra.
