In June 2020, Meerut Police’s cybercrime squad reported that more than 13,500 vivo cellphones in India shared the same IMEI number. The IMEI number is a 15-digit code that is intended to be unique to each mobile device and may be used to track criminals or stolen phones. Vivo may have impeded police monitoring of criminals or stolen cellphones by utilizing the same IMEI number for several smartphones. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said in 2017 that all mobile devices will need to have a unique IMEI number. Failure to do so would be considered tampering, and a fine or up to three years in prison might be imposed.
Following the occurrences, the police filed a complaint against vivo and its service center. The lapse was apparently discovered when a police officer brought his phone to the cybercrime squad for investigation since it was not operating correctly despite having been serviced at a vivo service center in Meerut. When the cybercrime unit discovered that the device’s IMEI number differed from the one on the box, it transmitted the IMEI number to an unnamed telecoms firm that provided telecommunications services for the cellphone and requested the pertinent data. According to the business, the identical IMEI number was active on 13,557 mobile phones across the country as of September 24, 2019. According to reports, the Meerut police issued a notice to vivo India’s nodal officer Harmanjit Singh under Section 91 of the CrPC, as well as a case under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.
