    Hyderabad has achieved first place in the country for recovering lost or stolen mobile devices. The State has a recovery rate of 67.98 percent, which is the highest in the country. This achievement was made possible through the use of the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR) portal.

    Director-General of Police, Anjani Kumar, congratulated the nodal officer, Additional Director-General of Police, CID, Mahesh M Bhagwat, and his team for their efforts in achieving this milestone. The CEIR portal was developed by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to combat mobile theft and counterfeit devices. It was launched nationwide in May of this year, but it was piloted in Telangana in April 2023.

    Telangana stands first in the country with a recovery rate of 67.98 percent. Karnataka follows with a recovery rate of 54.20 percent, and Andhra Pradesh comes in third with a recovery rate of 50.90 percent.

    To make it easier for users and improve efficiency, the Telangana police have integrated the CEIR portal with the TS Police Citizen Portal. This integration allows citizens to report lost or missing mobile devices through the Police Citizen Portal instead of visiting Mee-Seva or police stations. This service aims to be more user-friendly and convenient for the citizens of Telangana.
