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.
To send text messages anywhere within India, one needs to register with the telecom operator as an Enterprise. TRAI has currently directed to stop unregistered entities or enterprises and their header traffic.
