Kya imei number se mobile trace kar sakte hai

I want to trace phone by imei number because my phone was stolen by someone. Can be possible

In India,law prevents the carrier and its representatives from using the proprietary network to locate or attempt to triangulate a device’s location without a warrant order or special request from police or home department. Such an order must be presented to the carrier’s legal team or whatever they call it.

Device IMEI number is registered with specific phone number and that data is available on carrier server, once you knock the door of carrier in a legal way they send triangulation signals which gives you location of cell in which that device is operating and this location could be of diameter of few Kms.
