According to the New Regulation of TRAI regulations, telemarketers have to be registered in the DLT platform. It is most important to know distributed ledger technology (DLT), also called "Shared Ledger" to prevent spam.
To prevent the end-customer from incidents of spam and fraud SMS, TRAI has amended the rules in India.
In the commercial communication system- if any Businesses, Enterprises, Companies, agencies, or any service provider want to promote their product, advertise or send transnational messages to customers, then it will be mandatory to register them with telecom operators as per the new TRAI rule.
As per the direction from TRAI to send messages to our customers every service provider needs to be registered on the DLT platform with their headers or sender IDs. Without registration, they would be unable to send any SMS once DLT comes into effect.
The system is using blockchain technology known as DLT.
Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is a digital system that is managed the transaction and their details in multiple participants, with multiple devices at the same time.
A distributed database shared, and synchronized digital data spread across multiple sites, countries, or institutions. there is no central administrator that acts as head or monitor.
TRAI mandated to adopt Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) with permission and private DLT networks
Origin of Ledgers- A ledger is a record of information, transactions, and similar data that existed in paper form. Now, with the new computer technology or approach, ledgers changed into computerized ledgers.
DLT has been implemented by Govt. because Unsolicited Commercial Communications (UCC) are a major cause of disturbance for telecom users.
Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to prevent spam Guidelines for Enterprises.
Many communications invade the privacy of individuals. for example- to control the SMS spam, OTP, verification codes, notification, etc sending from various marketing firms.
There are primarily two types of distributed ledger technologies.
Permissioned networks are private networks. This feature is designed for those, who do not want to make their data public to everyone.
Permissionless networks are public networks and are the most decentralized. In this users do not need permission to participate in the permissionless network. they can be deployed in production or removed, without having to notify anyone.
some documents are needed for DLT registration .
Telemarketers and enterprises not on the DLT platform may not be able to send messages.
