Indian Govt. has decided to ban all mobile phones without IMEI number from today. It is expected that around 15 to 20 million mobile phones which are cheap and mostly made in China without IMEI nos. will be banned from today. IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity is a unique 15-digit code which comes with every handset. IMEI is used to prevent making calls from stolen handsets and it allows to track down a specific user. Hence the users with mobile phones without proper IMEI are advised to implant IMEI nos. which costs Rs. 199 to avoid facing disconnection.
