The technological branch of the Department of Telecom (DoT), C-DoT, has created a website called Sanchar Saathi that is focused on the needs of the citizens. This website aims to increase security and provide mobile users more authority. In various areas, including Maharashtra, Karnataka, Delhi, and the North East, C-Dot was running the CEIR system pilot. Sanchar Saathi’s services are now available throughout India, thanks to the government. This implies that mobile users all throughout India can now block, monitor their stolen or lost devices, verify a device’s legitimacy before purchasing it, and more.
Users can utilise this website to block their stolen or misplaced phones. By entering the phone’s IMEI information and temporarily banning it, users can report a lost or stolen phone. The phone will no longer function on any Indian telecom service provider’s network after it has been blacklisted, rendering it useless.
