TRAI Working on Technology to Detect Pesky Calls and Messages | Details Inside

Telecom regulator TRAI said that it is working on various technologies to detect pesky calls and messages along with a joint action plan with other regulators to curb financial frauds.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said that Unsolicited Commercial Communication (UCC) or pesky communication is a major source of inconvenience to the public and impinges on the privacy of individuals.

TRAI Said :

“Now complaints are reported against Unregistered Telemarketers (UTMs), where a surge has been seen in pushing various kinds of UCC SMSes. Additionally, UCC calls are also one of the concerns which need to be dealt with equally along with UCC SMSes,”.

TRAI in coordination with various stakeholders is taking necessary steps to check UCC from UTMs also.

These steps include implementation of UCC detect system, provision of Digital Consent Acquisition, intelligent scrubbing of the Headers and Message templates, using AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Language), etc,” as per statement.

To curb the menace of pesky calls and messages, TRAI issue the Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulations, 2018 that create an ecosystem based on blockchain (Distributed Ledger Technology-DLT).

The regulation mandates registration of all commercial promoters and telemarketers to register on DLT platform and seek customer consent for receiving various kinds of promotional messages at time and day of their choice.

Under this framework, about 2.5 lakh principal entities have register with more than 6 lakh headers and approximately 55 lakh approve message templates which are being push to consumers through register telemarketers and TSPs using DLT platforms.

The regulator said that the framework has result in substantial reduction of customer complaints to the extent of 60% for the register telemarketers.

TRAI said that it has further taken an initiative to form a Joint Committee of Regulators (JCOR) comprising Reserve Bank of India, Securities & Exchanges Board of India (Sebi) and Ministry of Consumer Affairs (MoCA) to frame a joint action plan to curb financial frauds using telecom resources.

TRAI Said :

“In the recent meeting of JCOR held on November 10, 2022, which was attended by the representatives of Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) also, measures to curb the UCC further were deliberated in detail,”.
