The Department of Telecom (DoT) has launched a new portal, Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection (TAFCOP), that allows users to check all the mobile numbers registered using the user’s Aadhaar.

As per the TAFCOP portal, the website has been “developed to help subscribers, check the number of mobile connections working in their name, and take necessary action for regularising their additional mobile connections, if any”.

The TAFCOP portal allows users to report the numbers that they don’t recognize or those that are no longer in use. The portal is currently available only for users from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

As per the existing guidelines by DoT, a single person can register up to nine numbers in their name. Individuals who have registered more than nine numbers will be intimated by an SMS and they will be able to act using this portal.

This limit is extended to 18 for those who use an eSIM.
