New Rules for Mobile Calling: A big change is going to happen for mobile phone users from tomorrow. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India i.e. TRAI is going to change the rules of calling and SMS from tomorrow 1st May. TRAI is implementing new rules regarding fraud calls and spam messages, after which people will get rid of repeated promotional calls and spam messages. Smartphone users have been demanding for a long time a step against professional calls with 10 digit numbers.
TRAI is going to ban such 10-digit numbers from May, which are for normal use but are used by telemarketers for promotional calls. From May 1, 2023, the number of fake calls and promotional messages will come down drastically.
TRAI issued instructions to companies
TRAI has issued instructions to telemarketing companies to stop fake and fraud calls harassing users. It will be mandatory to implement these rules from 1 May 2023. For this, TRAI is taking the help of Artificial Intelligence. TRAI has asked telecom companies to install AI filter in their system. This filter will block all incoming promotional calls from normal 10 digit numbers.
Company working on new feature
Airtel, the second largest telecom company in the country, can start installing filters from May 1, but Reliance Jio may take some time. Not just AI filter, TRAI is working on more methods to prevent fraud calls. TRAI is also working on the caller ID feature in which the name and photo of the caller will be known.
