In June 2020, Meerut Police’s Cyber Crime Unit revealed that more than 13,500 Vivo smartphones in use in India were running on the same IMEI number. The IMEI number is a 15-digit code meant to be unique to each mobile device, which can be used to track criminal or stolen mobile phones. By using the same IMEI number for multiple devices, Vivo can thwart police tracking of criminals or seat devices. In 2017, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India issued a statement that all mobile devices will be required to have a unique IMEI number. Failure to do so can be seen as tampering and can result in a fine or up to 3 years in prison.
Whatever led to the filing of a police case against Vivo and its service department. The allegation reportedly came to light when a police officer handed over his mobile phone to the staff of the cyber crime unit for investigation, as the phone was not working properly despite being repaired at a Vivo service center in Meerut. The Cyber Crime Unit discovered that the IMEI number of the device was different from the one printed on the box and forwarded the IMEI number to an unknown telecommunication company providing telecommunication services for the handset and sought the relevant that detail. The company informed that on September 24, 2019, the same IMEI number was run on 13,557 mobile phones in different states of the country. The Meerut police have reportedly issued a notice to Vivo India’s nodal officer Harmanjit Singh under Section 91 of the CrPC, and also registered a case under Section 420 of the Indian Pal Code.
