Recently, we had mentioned about the implementation of TRAI’s Do Not Call Registry, which allowed users to block unsolicited calls. The response to this initiative was great as 5 million i.e. 50 lakh users have already registered for the same. That’s about a million users registering every day. The above fact shows how bugged Indians are with such telemarketers intruding their privacy.
The easy access to registration provided by the respective operators through their sites is one aspect which has resulted in the overwhelming response. While one one side, users would be enjoying the benefits of the initiative, telemarketers are feeling the exact opposite, thanks to reduced numbers of people to market to. If this is bad news for the telemarketers, there’s more in store for them. According to TRAI, this is just one tenth of the expected regsitrations. The numbers are expected to reach 50 million. That’s a hard pinch for all the small call centers and marketers who make about 10 million calls every year.
