BANGKAPOS.COM– Even though it is still intensifying, Indonesia still has many BM (Black Market) mobile phones that are illegal.
Such mobile phones enter or exceed the rules and do not pay taxes.
BM mobile phones seem to give consumers and government losses.
For customers, BM mobile phones do not provide quality products that are maintained and do not provide optimal warranty protection.
For the government, BM mobile phones certainly do not have tax revenues that comply with the rules and increase the value of import in large quantities.
So the government continues to try to suppress the circulation of illegal mobile phones in the market.
By this step the government protects the interests of industry and domestic consumers.
The Ministry of Industry (Kemperin) is developing a system for identifying, registering and blocking devices (DIRBS) for detecting mobile products by verifying the International Mobile Identity Identity (IMEI).
Telematic Industry and Electronic Industries Director Jan Suryanto said the IMEI Implementation Decree would be formalized in the near future.
"The goal is no longer black markets and illegal mobile phones," Damir said on Friday (6/21) last week.
According to him, formulating this rule is a little complicated, so implementation on the ground can fail.
Understandably, thinking about the experience of setting up a SIM card, Damir wants to ensure that the community does not attack the policy.
