The government has issued directions to Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) for blocking incoming international spoofed calls. In a statement, the Ministry of Communications informed that fraudsters are making international spoofed calls displaying Indian mobile numbers to Indian citizens and committing cyber-crime and financial frauds.  These calls appear to be originating within India but being made by the cyber-criminals from abroad by manipulating the calling line identity. 

The ministry said that these calls have been misused in recent cases of fake digital arrests, Fed Ex scams, drugs/narcotics in courier, impersonation as government and

police officials, disconnections of mobiles numbers by DoTs/TRAI officials, etc.

It noted that together with the Department of Telecommunications, the TSPs have devised a system to help identify and block incoming international spoofed calls from reaching any Indian telecom subscriber.
The incoming international spoofed calls with Indian landline numbers are being already blocked by the TSPs as per the directions issued by DoT. Now directions have been issued to the TSPs for blocking of such incoming international spoofed calls, the Ministry said.
