    There is no Govt. Authroity which maintains this information.
    It is only maintained by the Service Provider and can be accessed by the Security Agencies, if required.
    You will not get this information if the service provider is a private operator.
    Even if it is BSNL/MTNL, this information will be denied under Sec 8(1)(j) unless you can bring in larger public interest.
