NATIONAL DO NOT CALL REGISTRY

The National Do Not Call Registry is a database having the list of all telephone numbers of the subscribers who do not want to receive "Unsolicited Commercial Communication" (UCC).

"Unsolicited Commercial Communication" means any message, through telecommunications service, which is transmitted for the purpose of informing about, or soliciting or promoting any commercial transaction in relation to goods, investments or services which a  subscriber opts not to receive, but does not include, ----

(i) Any message (other than promotional message) relating to a service or financial transaction under a specific contract between the parties to such contract.

(ii) Any message relating to charities, national campaigns or natural calamities transmitted on the directions of the Government or agencies authorized by it for the said purpose.

(iii) Messages transmitted, on the directions of the Government or any authority or agency authorized by it, in the interest of the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States, public order, decency or morality.

Telephone subscriber (Landline or mobile) who does not wish to receive UCC, can register their telephone number with their telecom service provider for inclusion in the NDNC. Telecom Service Provider shall upload the telephone number to the NDNC within 45 days of its receipt.

Registered Telemarketers are required to recheck the callers list with the registry and delete the numbers that are registered under National Do Not Call Registry.
