Don’t worry, mobile phones don’t shut down even if they aren’t registered
The government has announced in its budget speech that it will launch Mobile Device Management System (MDMS) from next fiscal year.
This means, “Mobile phones without IMEI number registration will not work from July 1.” It asks the mobile user ‘If the mobile you are using is not registered, will it not work?’ The question has been raised.
There are many such mobiles in the villages since they could not register now. Will all of them be shut down to avoid mobile user service?
In the midst of this dilemma, we have asked the regulatory body the question, if the current mobile registration is not done, will it be made?
The authority has clarified, ‘Even if any mobile phone is not registered, it will not be switched off. They run as usual. ‘
NEA has said that even if the mobile device management system comes into operation on July 20, it will not affect the existing mobiles.
Achutananda Mishra, co-spokesperson of the Nepal Telecommunication Authority, said that there would be no problem with the mobile phones.
“I also talked to President Zhou,” Mishra told ICT News. “He told me there would be no problem with the current mobile phone.”
You have to register the IMEI number of the current mobile. Mishra said that it was an old rule but the current mobile phones will not be switched off from July 20.
“Right now, all services are based on mobile. It is embarrassing to turn off all the mobiles at once. Mobile phones with seams are not being switched off ‘, he said.
However, he informed that the mobile phones entering Nepal from July 20 will be blocked if they are not registered.
