BSNL DND Registration Service

What is DND Service: Owing to the increasing number of complaints from customers regarding unsolicited calls from business promotion agents and telecallers Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has framed The Telecom Unsolicited Commercial Communications(UCC) Regulations 2007 for curbing UCC. The Regulation envisages that all the telecom service providers would set up a mechanism to receive requests from subscribers who do not want to receive UCC and for this purpose they will maintain and operate a Private Do Not Call List. The Private Do Not Call List will include telephone numbers and other details of all such subscribers.
