How does DLT Registration work and why is it required?

As to the recommendations set forth by the telecom regulatory authority of India, known as the TCCCPR 2018, all business organizations that wish to deliver commercial communications to their clients are required to register as Principal entities on the BSNL DLT site, which can be accessed at To adhere to TRAI’s TCCCPR 2018 recommendations, all new and existing business companies wishing to utilize bulk SMS or OBD (Out Bound dialling) must register on the BSNL DLT site as Principal company. The newly announced law aims to efficiently address the annoyance of spam that subscribers encounter.

The 2018 TCCCPR regulations stipulate:

a) Senders’ registration (entities and telemarketers): By registering, firms may establish their legitimacy and win over customers’ confidence. This makes it harder for unidentified companies to contact their clients with phone calls and communications that are phony or suspicious in other ways.
b) Header registration: This involves cleverly utilizing headers to divide up various message kinds.
c) Registration of Message Template: The idea behind registered templates is to stop promotional messages from being purposefully mixed into the transactional stream in both voice and SMS communication.
d) Consent registration for subscribers
e) Exact control over personal tastes
The DLT portal is now operational at Telemarketers, entities, headers, and templates must all register through this site.
