Govt launches portal to trace lost, stolen mobile phones
Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad launched a web portal on Monday that helps to trace and block stolen or lost mobile phones for residents of the region.

NEW DELHI: The Center has launched a dedicated portal to help detect and block the whereabouts of stolen or lost mobile phones. Mobile phone users in the National Capital Region may find it easier to track their stolen or lost devices. Telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad launched a web portal on Monday that helps to trace and block stolen or lost mobile phones for residents of the region. The initiative will help as many as 50 million mobile subscribers in Delhi and its satellite cities. The portal will soon be available nationwide.

Citizens can register their request on https://ceir.gov.in/ along with a copy of the FIR and address proof to block the IMEI number of their lost/stolen device. The request ID can be used to track the status of the request and unblock the IMEI number later.  Based on this, the mobile is blocked. If someone uses that mobile, they trace the device based on tower signals and recover the device. Telecom secretary Anshu Prakash said the phone could not be sold after the blocking.

“Tampering of IMEI was become a punishable offence in 2015. The initiative will enable blocking of stolen numbers on all networks,” Delhi’s Lieutenant Government Anil Baijal said.
