Indian Government to use Blockchain to curb Spam phone calls
As per a recent press release, Microsoft and Tech Mahindra will be working jointly on developing a Blockchain based platform that would fight against the problem of UCC or Unsolicited Commercial Communications.


UCC or Spam calls is a big problem in India where a large number of users get numerous calls from marketing agencies, banking sector and fake groups. DND service, which has been in place for around a decade now, was introduced to block such calls. Though the rules and regulations of DND service are quite strict and very much in favour of the end customer,  people still face this issue time and again.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India or TRAI has looped in Tech Mahindra and Microsoft to build up a Digital Ledger Technology or DLT-based solution that would build a stronger system to deal with the issue of UCC. With a single global network of blockchain that telecom service providers would have access to, it will greatly help reduce the problem of spam calls. This ledger would maintain details of user's preferences, unregistered telecom marketers, complaint management and other related items that shall curb this spam call menace.
