The department of Telecommunications (DoT) has initiated a new web portal in the name of a project called Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) which will help the mobile phone users to find their lost phones. Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad, the minister for communications introduced the portal in Mumbai on September 13 (Friday).  The main motto of the project is to block the reported lost or stolen mobile devices which also includes tracking the mobile.

It is a known fact that all the mobile devices are equipped with International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) and many users use the number to trace the phone by themselves with the help of another mobile.

However, the Gadgets 360 report says that IMEI is reprogrammable and there are chances that miscreants would reprogram the IMEI number which leads to duplication of similar IMEI numbers. When it is done, the same IMEI number will be found in many devices which makes the process even more complicated. The CEIR project also prevents the duplication of IMEI numbers across mobile devices.
