New Delhi:
A National Do Not Call (NDNC) Registry,
registration to which will eliminate unsolicited
telmarketing phone calls, is likely to be set up
by September 5, Minister of State
for Communications and IT, Shakeel Ahmad, said today.
"The NDNC is likely to be put in place by
September 5," he said replying to supplementaries
during Question Hour in the Rajya Sabha.
Cellphone users can register their numbers with
the NDNC Registry if they do not
want to receive telemarketing calls and SMS.
"Once registered with NDNC, the registration will
be valid for 10 years," the Minister
said.
He said telecom regulator TRAI has issued
regulation on unsolicited commercial communications
on June 5, 2007. NDNC Registry is being put in
place to register requests of mobile
subscribers who do not want to be disturbed by
telemarketing calls.
"This registry does not discriminate between the
poor and the rich. Any mobile subscriber
can request his/her own service provider to get
his number included in NDNC Registry.
This facility is free of cost for subscribers," he
said.
The minister said there is no proposal to evolve
a Registry with a positive list
of subscribers who welcome telemarketing calls.
"The scheme of NDNC Registry is applicable to
unwanted telemarketing SMS messages
also," he said.
