How to Start / Stop "Donot Disturb Services (DND) in India"

SMS is modern days telegram.

Any message, mostly of 160 alphabets or 180 characters, is delivered instantly at the mobile phone of receiver. And all these services comes at a cost as low as few paisa's.

Just like any development or advancement is accompanied by exploitation, this SMS was also exploited by opportunistic people. Many sms sourcing business, product promotion ofter pester the mobile phone owner. These sms are called Bulk sms, often send from a website or by a software. And with many of these cell phones having capacity to hold 50 sms to 200 sms in inbox as maximum, deleting these sms seem to have been a big punishment for them.

After receiving tonnes of complaints from mobile phone subscribers, the telecom ministry formed a national level directory of "Do Not Disturb Registry". Once you subscribe yourself in this website or send an sms to them, your number is enrolled with them with in 45 days. Once enrolled, you can be sure that "Bulk SMS" donot disturb you anymore. And Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has gone one step further by providing this facility to block unwanted calls for both mobile phones and land lines.

But the catch is, all bulk sms are blocked. For instance, at EASY Investments we send market updates by sms. It is a convenient way of reaching all our investors, without disturbing them. These sms are sent through a dedicated website. But our sms would not reach the DND enabled mobile numbers. Hence many of the critical informations that could make lots of sense for your investments are being missed out.

What is the way out ?
To start receiving these sms, you need to unsubscribe to DND. In such case, all sms including our SMS would be received within 45 days. No doubt, JUNK sms would also be dumped in your mobile. You need to eliminate unwanted sms, if you want to benefit.

How to Stop receiving Bulk SMS:

Customers (landline and mobile) who do not want to receive commercial communications can dial or SMS to 1909 (toll free) and register in either of the two categories:
Fully Blocked Category- stoppage of all commercial Calls/SMS
Partially Blocked Category- stoppage of all commercial Calls/SMS except SMS from one of the opted preferences

For registering option using SMS, for 'fully blocked category',
Type "START 0" and send it to 1909.

For 'partially blocked category',
Type 'START' with one or multiple options from the list of seven categories.
There are at present 7 preferences to choose from-
Banking/Insurance/Financial Products/Credit Cards-1,
Real Estate-2,
Education-3,
Health-4,
Consumer goods and automobiles-5,
Communication/Broadcasting/Entertainment/IT-6,
Tourism-7.

For example: To receive messages relating to only Health products, then send SMS "START 4" to 1909. Similarly, for receiving messages relating to Real Estate and Education, send SMS "START 2,3" to 1909.
