What is DLT Registration?

To send SMS messages or text blasts in India, compliance with Digital ledger Technology (DLT) registration is a must, as mandated by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). This technology has been developed to lower the number of spam messages, as well as to enhance the satisfaction of telecom subscribers and bolster trustworthiness and safety.

The TRAI website and any authorized DLT registration centers both host the application form for DLT registration. To get DLT registered, you’d need personal and business data, along with the information regarding the SMS messages you intend to send, including the amount, frequency, and intended receivers. One should carefully examine it for errors and ensure all the needed areas are filled in before submitting the application.
