Registration on DLT India

This is applicable only for India SMS traffic, international traffic submissions kindly ignore. The TRAI Regulation is intended to eliminate spam and fraud in India.

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in its continuous endeavour to create a cleaner and transparent system in the Indian telecom industry has released a new regulation in July 2018 to curb Unsolicited Commercial Communication (UCC) and enhance mobile subscriber privacy, TCCCPR 18 Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulation 2018. The Regulation is intended to eliminate spam and fraud which has been a concern for many years. The regulation has mandated the use of Blockchain technology also known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to implement the solution.
