Day by day telecom users are increasing and so as the number of unregistered users also. Therefore recently the Government has disconnected 51,000 telephone numbers of subscribers those who have not registered themselves as a telemarketer but still using the network as them.
Milind Deora Minister of State for Communications and IT said, “Notices have been served on nearly 88,300 subscribers who have carried out similar violations”.
According to Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulations, 2010, subscriber must be registered with TRAI as a telemarketer to make any commercial communications and if the person is not registered then the originating access provider shall issue a notice to such subscriber asking him to discontinue sending such communications. On the second occasion his telecom services will be disconnected. 140 number series are allotted to registered telemarketers.
