Gray Market in Nepal
Selling grey cellphones was a big concern in Nepal for a long time. If the phrase is unknown, the gray market is essentially the distribution/sales of legitimate commodities through unauthorized methods. The government, therefore, lacks potential income, while the official importers lose their business.

Nepal Telecoms Authority (NTA) has made registration for IMEI compulsory to overcome gray market difficulty. And the Mobile Device Management System is now being introduced in Nepal for the same objective
(MDMS) Mobile Device Management System is a system designed to control the illegal distribution of smartphones. Here, vendors must Register a Unique Identity Number Of Mobile Handsets before the product is sold.

- First you need to visit NTA official forum for registration.
