DoT's AI Analysis Flagged ~6.80 Lakh Mobile Connections Fraudulent, Aims for Re-verification or Disconnection

Department of Telecommunications (DoT), through advanced AI-driven analysis, has identified and flagged around 6.80 lakh mobile connections as potentially fraudulent. These connections suspected to have been obtained using invalid, non-existent, or fake/forged Proof of Identity (PoI) and Proof of Address (PoA) KYC documents.

The questionable truthfulness of the PoI/PoA KYC documents suggests the use of fabricated documents for obtaining these mobile connections.

DoT has issued directives to the Telecommunication Service Providers (TSP) to carry out immediate re-verification of these identified mobile numbers. All TSPs are mandated to re-verify the flagged connections within 60 days. Failure to complete re-verification will result in the disconnection of the concerned mobile numbers.

The DoT has asked for the re-verification to ensure the integrity of mobile connections and the security of digital transactions. DoT is committed to creating a secure digital environment for all.

The collaboration between various sectors and the utilization of AI technology have been pivotal in identifying these fraudulent connections, demonstrating the effectiveness of integrated digital platforms in combating identity fraud.
