The SIM card fraud: The government has implemented new rules regarding SIM cards from January 1. But if you think that someone is running a fake SIM card in your name and you do not know about this, then there is no need to worry now.
This is because if someone else has a SIM card in your name, then he can do any wrong work in your name. Which can put you in trouble. So today we are going to tell you about a website from which you can find out how many SIMs are running on top of your Aadhaar card.
What is this website?
In order to prevent SIM card fraud or cyber fraud, the Department of Telecom has recently introduced a portal that will let you know how many SIM cards are issued on one Aadhaar card. The portal is called Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP). With the help of this portal, you can find out how many SIM cards have been purchased on the Aadhaar card of the same person. Along with this, you can also close those fake SIM cards with the help of this website.
What is the process
- First of all you have to go to https://tafcop.dgtelecom.gov.in/.
- Now you have to check that you have entered the correct address. After this, you will get an input field by going to the home page of the website and click on the button of Get OTP.
- Now you will get an OTP from the Department of Telecommunications, which you have to enter and click on the button of Submit.
- After entering the OTP, you will see the list of mobile numbers purchased from your Aadhaar card.
- Look at this list carefully and find out which number has not been taken by you and is not coming in handy. You can give this information to the Department of Telecommunications from the portal itself.
- To report a number, select the checkbox located to the left of the number, and click “This is not my number” if you do not remember buying the number. For the numbers that you no longer need, click on the “Not needed” option.
- After that, you need to click on the “Report” button.
