The decision to change the calling regulations was made by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). The new requirements require TRAI to set up a filter. On May 1st, 2023, this legislation will come into effect to stop phoney SMS and phone calls.
All telecom companies must include official intelligence spam filters into their call and message services as per TRAI regulations. In this approach, fake calls and SMS can be avoided. The directive requires all telecom operators to put call and messaging filters in place before May 1, 2023.
In this context, Airtel has previously said that it will offer these AI filters. Jio, on the other hand, has revealed plans to set up AI filters for bogus calls and messages. Only this information has been made public thus far, but it is predicted that beginning on May 1, 2023, AI filters would be used in India.
To stop bogus calls and texts, TRAI has developed a strategy to create regulations. As a result, TRAI has asked that calls for promotions made from mobile numbers with 10 digits be blocked.
The caller ID function, which will show the caller’s name and picture, has also been introduced by TRAI. In this regard, the Truecaller app is in discussions with Airtel and Jio as well. In consideration of privacy, the corporation is holding off on introducing the caller ID function.
