      Hello Ramana,

      NCPR (old DND) offers you 7 categories of communications to choose from, one of them is “Communication – Broadcasting – Entertainment – IT”, where way2sms & 160by2 falls under.
      If you wish to receive calls / messages from above websites, you will get promotional calls / messages from other websites / companies also.

      You should wait for some more days, as any DND (now NCPR) request will take 7 days to get it processed and you have given request on just 30/12/12.

      Hello Viswanadh,

      Those school update fall under online communication and you need to choose your NCPR / DND preference 6 by sending SMS START 6 to 1909 or call 1909 to receive those updates.
      But, note that, you will also start receiving online communications from sites or SMS updates as well

      Hello Asad,

      Either you want or don’t want SMS from Bank related to your Credit / Debit card, DND has no control.
      To cancel DND, send SMS STOP to 1909 from your mobile number.
