      Hello Sheba,

      To block individual numbers in Landline, either get your local police help or use a Smart Land-line phone which supports this feature.

        are you serious? I must go to the police to register DND? What nonsense! What police will entertain this? BSNL is to receive these request and not the police! And why must I buy a Smart Landline to register my landline with BSNL?

          Hello Raja,

          If you want to block specific numbers only, either you should take local police help or use a Smart land-line phone which support number blacklisting.
          Or, if you want to block all commercial phone calls & SMS, activate DND.
