The whole drama started in December as we shared in TelecomTalk when TRAI come with its first of its kind of amendment to regulate unwanted calls.

TRAI today issued “The Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference its Third Amendment Regulations 2011”.

As per the new amendment Consumer Preference Registration to stop Unsolicited Commercial Communication will start from 10th Feb 2011 with this subscribers will have all right to opt which service to opt and which not to.The regulation provides that the customer preferences would be effective within seven days from the day of opting it.

To control telemarketing calls (DoT) has now allocated a new separate numbering series starting with the number ‘140’ for telemarketing activities prior it was 70 so communicating the same to all the service providers and carrying out the required changes would require time.

Therefore, The Authority has to change the date of implementation of operationalization from 1st March 2011.

It is sad that even legitimate sms to bulk receivers are stopped just because of this new guideline, calls sure can harass people but sms can be deleted, I wonder why people get so offended about a silly sms, bulk or otherwise. It seems strange that there needs to be guidelines applied to valid users who want to receive the sms, now untangling this seems to be have become a greater imbroglio, as legitimate users have stopped giving their legitimate service because of this guideline, as much as I hate spam sms, this is going too far.

Its good to hear that the trai has introduced a new steps to control the unwanted calls and Msgs, but the service providers may loose their business and most of the youngsters may not like this since they are the one who share, chat or send msgs to their frnds, so what will happen then?
