Stop Unsolicited Commercial Calls (UCC) and messages (SMS)

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Last Updated (Friday, 30 September 2011 01:56) Written by Johnlee Thursday, 29 September 2011 23:58


The Indian telecom Industry is the second largest (after China) wireless market in the world with nearly 900 million subscribers. Low tariffs and direct reach to consumers has made SMS and direct calling (known as telemarketing) one of the most cost effective ways of selling products and services. This has introduced serious issues of invasion into privacy and has become a major annoyance to customers.

To control this and effectively regulate unsolicited commercial Calls and messages, TRAI has notified "The Telecom Commercial Communication Customer Preference Regulations, 2010". All the provisions of these regulations came into effect from 27th September, 2011.

The Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Portal ( is a data base containing a variety of information prescribed in "The Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulations, 2010".

Now the landline and mobile phone customers 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 – this will stop all commercial Calls/SMS

Partially Blocked – this will stop all commercial Calls/SMS except SMS from one of the opted preferences


How to register?

You can register to this option using SMS

-         For fully blocked: write "START 0" and send it to 1909.

-         For partially blocked: send SMS 'START' with one or multiple options from the list of seven categories listed below.

Available customer preferences

-         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: If you wish to receive messages relating to only Health products, then send SMS "START 4" to 1909. Similarly, for receiving messages related to Education and Health, send SMS "START 3,4" to 1909. 


On successful registration, you will receive an SMS confirming the registration and a Unique Registration Number within 24 hrs. The registration will be effective within 7 days of placing the request. You can check the status of your registration by clicking on

You also change the preferences after 7 days of registration or the last change of preference.

Wondering what are these SMS Codes?

You will be receiving SMS and alerts from Banks, companies, service providers etc. These SMS are coming some particular sender code like:

TA-ICICI, VX-Vodafone, AX-Airtel, AD-HDFCBANK, TM-ICICIBNK, TM-HDFC-Sec, TA-ICICILom and so on… 

Have you ever wondered what are these SMS codes and from where these SMS gets originated? Then below information will help you to understand this. 

Generally these SMSs are originated from a Bulk SMS Provider who uses 11 digit alpha-numeric characters as Sender Code. 

There was a potential security risk in this method because it was possible to give a phone number as Sender Code. It appears to the recipient that this SMS was originated from that particular phone number. This method can be used to send SMS from a fake phone number. 


TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) has identified this security risk and introduced the regulation which restricts the Bulk SMS Providers to use 8 character Sender Code. The remaining 3 characters are used to specify the service provider identity and the location of SMS origination. This prevents SMS Providers from sending unsolicited commercial communication. 


So the Sender Code has the following format. 


Here first character (X) is the service provider code.

Second character (Y) is the location of SMS origination.

And remaining 8 characters (followed by an hyphen) is used to specify company name.


Following table lists the Codes assigned to the service providers.



Following table lists the Codes assigned to the location (area).



So now let us dissect the sender code AD-HDFCBANK

Here first character A tells that the service provider is Airtel (Bharti)

Second character D tells the location Delhi

And the remaining characters tells the company name HDFC Bank.


So, I am sure next time you get an SMS with a code like this, you’ll know what it is.

Introducing QR Codes

Introducing QR Codes

Mobile Phones are the most revolutionary device which has changed our lives in the present world. Camera phones have become the part of our daily life like our clothing accessories.

The latest Mobile technology today which we can play with much ease is QR Codes (Quick Response Code). This technology requires just one thing - a camera phone along with a QR Code Reader.

A QR Code is a matrix code (or two-dimensional bar code) created by Japanese corporation Denso-Wave in 1994. The "QR" is derived from "Quick Response", as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed. QR Codes are common in Japan where they are currently the most popular type of two dimensional code.

Although initially used for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR Codes are now used in a much broader context spanning both commercial tracking applications as well as convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile phone users. You can see QR Codes storing addresses and URLs which appear in magazines, on signs, buses, business cards or just about any object that a user might need information about. A user equipped with a camera phone and the correct reader software can scan the image of the QR Code causing the phone's browser to launch and redirect to the programmed URL. This act of linking from physical world objects is known as a hardlink or physical world hyperlinks. A user can also generate and print one's own QR Code for others to scan and use by visiting one of several free QR Code generating sites.



QR Code data capacity

Numeric only Max. 7,089 characters

Alphanumeric Max. 4,296 characters


How to Scan QR Codes

Scanning a QR code is as easy as taking pictures with the camera phone. The latest mobile phones like (Nokia N93, N93i, N95 or E90) come with a pre-installed QR code reader. Various reader software are available which can be installed on your camera phone. Point your mobile phone camera to code image and get the encoded information encoded within few seconds. The code can encode a text, a business card, Message or website URL.

QR code readers can be installed directly by pointing your mobile phone browsers or by downloading it to your computer and then transferring it to the mobile phone from the following URLs

Frauds at Bangalore Petrol Pumps

Operators at various petrol pumps in Bangalore (may be in other cities too), are cheating customers by breaking up the delivery of petrol in two steps, and distracting them in between the steps. Most of us are conditioned to check only when the meter first starts running, and when it finally ends. If the petrol is given to us in two batches, some of us either miss (or are distracted) at the point when the meter needs to be reset to start the next batch. Operators take this opportunity to make money on our expense.
