India: Tips to avoid Spam SMS ad-calls

No one likes promotional SMSs and irritating calls from tele-marketers that keep on wasting your time. If you are also a target of these guys who've got nothing else to do, you should register for DND (Do Not Disturb) service initiated and operated by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) that would take care that no further promotional calls or SMS are delivered on your number. If any cellular service provider or merchants still violate the rule then they can be claimed compensation for it.

How to Register for DND Service?

For registering into DND service, follow either of the steps mentioned below
Call your service provider’s customer care and request for activation of DND service
SMS ‘START DND‘ to 1909 from the number you want to activate DND

After following the above procedure, your request will be processed and DND service will be activated within 45 days. Alternatively, to activate DND with only a single bank or insurance company, you can check out this list.
