DLT Registration for Bulk SMS

Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is a block-chain based registration system. It is implemented in the public interest to control the SMS spam.

whoever wants to send promotional bulk sms or transactional SMS to their customers needs to be DLT registered.


Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has recently released a Notification for the Bulk SMS industry. As per the recent guidelines, it is mandatory for a company to register on the DLT platform before sending Bulk SMS to its customers and clients. A Business Entity has to register itself on the DLT portal, register Sender IDs, submit message templates, and get their approval before sending Bulk SMS. We suggest you to complete the DLT Registration process as soon as possible else your messages will get failed and may not be delivered.
