The TRAI saves the day yet again with their innovative measures. The TRAI has grouped SMSes into various categories since a long while now. Lets briefly understand these below:
So from today both pesky calls and pesky SMS-es from these groups of companies will stop depending on which you have enabled and which not. I however got an email from a consumer goods company from where I have previously purchased products online - HomeShop18.
The flip side of the TRAI regulation also means that you will no more receive confirmation SMS on the order you placed. But once you enable the respective category, you will again be able to not only receive important SMS-es but also the junk marketing ones. It will be interesting to now see how India leads the way in blocking unwanted SMS-es or calls. still however two SMS-es never forget to make it to my mailbox - how to cure myself of baldness and how to become rich by investing into lands around Bangalore !!
