    I did mobile number portability 2 weeks back from airtel to vodafone . i registered to fully blocked category but sometimes i get sms.Also now i am not getting sms from banks regarding credit/debit. 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.

      Hello Suhani,

      There are two ways:

      1) If you have Smart Phone to use Apps, there are many apps available which blocks specific telephone numbers to call you. Search in your Apps store.
      2) Take help of your local police.

      Hello Sai,

      Your mobile is subscribed to NCPR / DND and since you have changed to full block preference on 03rd June’13, hope you are not getting unwanted call / SMS anymore from then.
      If you are getting those, Register a complaint.
