International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI)
is supposed to be a unique identity of a mobile phone device. A phone with
one/two slots of SIM Card is programmed with one/two IMEI number as the case
may be. IMEI number being programmable, some miscreants do reprogram the IMEI
number, which results in cloning of IMEI causing multiple devices with same
IMEI number. As on date, there are many cases of clones/duplicated IMEI
handsets in the network.
If such IMEI is blocked, a large number of
mobile phones will get blocked being handsets with same IMEI causing
inconvenience to many genuine customers. Thus, there is a need to eliminate
duplicate/fake IMEI mobile phones from the network.
Accordingly, this project called Central
Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) system has been undertaken by the DoT for
addressing security, theft and other concerns including reprogramming of mobile
