The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had issued some guidelines the SMS spam from different marketing firms. It has been issued last year, but now the TRAI announced to present the DLT platform to overcome SMS spam.
Distributed ledger technology (DLT) is a digital system for recording the transaction of participants in which the transactions and their details are recorded in multiple places at the same time. DLT is basically a shared database in a wide network where each user can use it independently. The ledger records all the transactions made by the network users. Unlike traditional databases, DTL does not have any central data store. Every record will have a cryptographic signature with a timestamp that helps in preventing fraud transactions.
However, TRAI has made some regulations using DLT, for the telecoms to record the preference of users on the preference registry and consent on a consent registry. This will help the user to remove consent anytime if the service is not applicable. This is the best way to reduce the risks of fraud transactions for the users.
DLT will surely expose the agencies sending spam SMS. It will help to find those who break the rules and guidelines.
