Cloning of IMEI will be banned
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 Department of Telecommunications, many cases of clone / duplicate IMEI handsets are reported to 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.
