The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has introduced database of valid mobile or legal, import or production of mobile phones. As a result, customers can easily identify legitimate or illegal mobile phones by sending SMS. No one is deceived by buying an illegal set – that is why the inauguration of the IMEI database on Tuesday. Postal, Telecommunication and Information Technology Minister Mustafa Jabber inaugurated the Datacenter. But now all the handset user data is not available in the database. This will take some time. The only sets that are being imported since January 1st are getting into the database.
From now on, anyone who sent the KYD and space for the verification of their set of data will send a 15-digit IMEI number and send it to 16002, then the message will be returned to the message, whether its set is stored in database or not. No registration will be required to get ‘NOC Automation and IMEI database (NAID) service’. All the numbers used in the database are not available right now. Most IMEI numbers are legally imported from January 1, 2018 and locally produced handsets are stored in this database. In phases, all the numbers will enter the database. At the event, Mustafa Jabbar said, “It is a milestone moment in the history of information technology. It is possible to stop the loss of the revenue due to importing handsets by stealing, without technology, can be stopped now. Not only revenue, security will also be ensured.
