KATHMANDU, September 16: The Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) has launched the Mobile Device Management System (MDMS) to deter the illegal import, sale and distribution of mobile phones.

Minister of Communication and Information Technology Gyanendra Bahadur Karki inaugurated the system to contain the possible entry of smartphones through an illegal channel as well as their sale and distribution in Nepal. With this, stolen and lost mobile sets can also be tracked and blocked.

Similarly, mobile phones brought individually from foreign countries and put into service to date will be automatically registered in the MDMS.

The ministry said the system is expected to help control the illegal import and sale of mobile phones, which will have a positive impact on mobile business. He took the time to say that the current government wishes to encourage and cooperate with the private sector in its efforts to lead the country on the path to prosperity.

He said the government is always aware of the state of the country’s economy and is committed to taking all possible measures to get it back on track.

Minister Karki stressed the need for effective implementation of MDMS.

Also speaking on the occasion, Secretary Dr Baikuntha Aryal advised everyone to be prepared to address possible issues during the implementation of MDMS, while NTA Chairman Purushottam Khanal urged importers and mobile phone distributors to strictly follow MDMS rules.
