Kindly help. As per dnd, banks are not covered in fully blocked category so there should have been no problem.The trai website http://www.nccptrai.gov.in/nccpregistry/saveSearchSub.misc shows that my number is registered but in 2007 under fully blocked category and that my service provider is airtel. Kindly help.

      Hello Sanju,

      DND / NCPR will not block solicited (wanted / subscribed) communication like Bank alerts or insurance reminders.
      Kindly check with your bank to ensure that they are delivering your alerts on your mobile number, without fail.
      Also, raise a compliant with your services provider as well.

      There are two ways:

    I’ve tried registering by sending an sms. Start 0 to 1909.

    I got a reply saying that the process is underway and I will receive a confirmation soon. Ironically, I’ve started receiving more calls and sms from advertisers after I registered. No updates so far from Vodafone.

    Thanks, i called 1909 , went through the process (by selecting appropriate options) to activate full DNDservice. the recorded voice said that my request has been received and would be processed in 7 working days. now lets see!

  20. Saurabh on 29th Aug' 12Reply

    I tried sending an SMS on 1909 in the correct format but got an error stating – “Error Page. There is some internal error occured in the system. Please try after some time”. For starters, they need to check on the grammar of the message they are sending to the service users. Secondly, I haven’t seen the 1909 service to be functioning since atleast -34 months now. I tried calling 1909 from my Vodafone connection and on selecting the language and selecting 3 to lodge a complaint the IVRS tells me that it is an invalid attempt. It appears no one is serious and DND has become a false hope and a joke. I’m getting 3-4 calls from banks, brokers, educational institutions everyday and it is an utter waste of time. I’m a DND member (fully blocked) since long but haven’t seen any effect.

        4 messages today again fr investment in property, 1 call from a broker asking me for stock investment and 2 calls from HDFC and Standard Chartered for personal loan and home loans respectively.
