23rd September 2021
"Nepal Telecommunications Authority has published a notice regarding the registration of all the mobile phones to register their IMEI number under NTA before 16th of July to continue the mobile services."

Nepal Telecommunications Authority has published a notice regarding the registration of all the mobile phones to register their IMEI number under NTA before the first of Shrawan(16th July) to continue the mobile services.

NTA has published the notice to discourage the illegal import and buying of mobile phones and to ensure the proper procedural and legal import and buying of mobile phones. Every phone should be bought from registered and authorized dealers and their IMEI number must be approved or else it shall be ruled out of service.

The mobiles bought from Nepal authorized dealers and bought in Nepal don`t need to be registered.

NTA has faced network trafficking due to the excess number of people accessing the website for registering their IMEI, and the authority has put the site under service and soon will be back in service again.

The mobiles imported from foreign for individual use will be facilitated for the smooth functioning and IMEI registration process will be allowed after the site is restored, these phones won't be deprived of their services.

NTA requests the buyers to take the VAT bill compulsory after every purchase of mobile to avoid unnecessary problems. 

"Many mobile users have been visiting the Authority due to confusion regarding whether they have to register IMEI of the set they have been using. Technical issues have surfaced in the system due to excessive flow of people registering IMEI of their mobile sets in NTA's website and it will take some time for resumption of the website," reads the notice.

Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) frames Byelaw for Cyber Security

23rd September 2021
"NTA has framed and implemented a Byelaw for the implementation of internationally prevailing cyber security standards."

Nepal has always been an easy target for hackers around the world. Previously, the servers of mercantile and banks have been hacked by international hackers. The government servers and Data Centers are also at high risk. Thus, it has become essential to protect the information systems and communication technology infrastructure from various types of cyber attacks and risks by adopting various internationally prevailing standards of cyber security. The Government of Nepal is also conscious of the need for cyber security standards.

So, exercising the authority given by Section 62 of the Telecommunications Act, 2053 (1997), the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) has framed a Byelaw- “Cyber ​​Security Byelaw, 2077 (2020)” and has implemented it right away. The Byelaw is implemented to ensure the cyber security standards in order to protect ICT Infrastructure and Information Systems of Telecommunication Service Providers of Nepal from various malicious attacks and threats, and build trust and confidence of users towards using ICT technology and services.

Thereupon, all the telecommunication service providers including basic telecommunication (telephone), mobile operators, networks and internet service providers that are licensed by Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA) are informed to operate their services conforming with the Byelaw.

The NTA’s move follows the formulation of a new satellite policy at home. The NTA said the formulation of the policy prompted to cancellation of the Expression of Interest for launching the satellite. NTA spokesperson Meen Prasad Aryal said a new process would begin in line with the new policy. 

The new policy requires the implementation of required laws and operation modality separately.

The Authority is prepared to call for international consultants to go with a new process.  The new satellite policy promises to launch Nepal’s own satellite by 2022. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) had permitted Nepal to install the satellite on 123/3 east longitude positions.

A study team formed by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology came up with the conclusion that the positions allowed by the ITU were not appropriate for positioning the satellite.   

The committee recommended 80 to 89 degrees east longitude as the suitable locations for launching the satellite.

The NTA had received the Expression of Interest from 22 companies of 12 countries.
