Telecom Regulatory Authority of India is looking into the blockchain technology to put a stop to unwanted SMS spams from marketing companies. The telecommunication authority is planning to launch a DLT platform by the end of this month. The new system would require all the enterprises to secure unique sender IDs with telemarketers registered for the new platform.

According to a Nasscom report, nearly half the states in India have initiated blockchain technology-based projects to address different elements of citizen service delivery. However, most of the blockchain projects are in their pilot stage. The central and state governments in the country have taken a positive approach to ensure start-ups in the IT sector.

Backend developers prefer blockchain technology, as it is very secure and fast. In the blockchain development zone, the most popular languages are Javascript, C#, C++, Python, Golang, Solidity, Java, and Rust. Frontend developers choose programming language like Angular or React Javascript.

Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar tweeted that the new Distributed Ledger Technology platform for all A2P SMS is expected to be launched by the end of November. He hailed this move by TRAI as perfect planning to tackle floods of spam SMS by telemarketers.

According to the IndianExpress report, the enterprises that want to send promotional SMS on DND customers will need mandatory consent every year on the DLT platform. TRAI Secretary SK Gupta had earlier said that a subscriber’s consent is liable to be misused by the enterprise. Under the new system, a subscriber has the option to revoke its consent any time he wants.

Once TRAI launches the DLT platform, all the enterprises would be required to register and secure unique sender IDs with telemarketers registered for the new platform.
