TAF-COP is a government-operated portal dedicated to monitoring and addressing issues related to fraud within the Telecom Department. The acronym ‘tafcop.dgtelecom‘ stands for Telecom Analytics for Fraud Management and Consumer Protection.
In the earlier days, acquiring a new SIM card often led to fraudulent activities, such as obtaining SIM cards under someone else’s name. However, this issue has been effectively mitigated through the implementation of eKYC with fingerprint verification.
To safeguard consumers from identity theft, the Government of India has introduced the portal, accessible at tafcop.dgtelecom. This portal serves as a vigilant eye overseeing all Telecom department activities. Users can easily utilize the Portal to report any mobile numbers they have not used for an extended period. Telecom service providers can then promptly address these reports by either blocking or deactivating the concerned numbers. Any concerns or problems related to your mobile number can be efficiently resolved through this portal.
