What is an IMEI?

SIM-enabled devices have a 15-digit IMEI number. The IMEI of such devices does not match each other. The IMEI number is the property that identifies the device.

How do you find your IMEI?

After going to the keypad of your mobile and dialing *#06#, the IMEI number of the device can be found.

What is an MDMS system?

The Nepal Telecommunication Authority has implemented the MDMS system to manage the import and use of mobile phones. The role of MDMS is to ban mobile phones from entering the state illegally and to legalize the unauthorized use of mobile phones and SIM cards by common people.

What benefit does MDMS bring to the common man?

assists in the search for lost and stolen mobile phones It also prevents the unauthorized use of such mobile phones.

Do you buy and sell mobile phones that are not registered with the authorities?

No, this is illegal. Before buying a mobile phone, you should check whether the mobile phone is registered with the authority or not.

In order to discourage the illegal import, sale, distribution, and use of mobile sets and to further organize them, including the tracking and blocking of stolen and lost mobile sets and ensuring that such mobiles do not operate within Nepal, the MDMS system is implemented by the Nepal Telecommunication Authority to inform all parties concerned. As of today, 2079 Bhadra 30th,

all mobile sets in use today, including those brought in personally from abroad, are automatically registered in the MDMS system. When buying a mobile after 2079 Bhadra 30th, the mobile set will be registered in the Nepal Telecommunication Authority’s MDMS system (mdms.nta.gov.np) and is requested to be purchased only with registered or unregistered units. Also, mobile phone importers and sellers are informed that before importing mobile phones, they must get the approval of the authority and sell only mobile phones that are registered with the authority.
