TRAI Postpones SMS Spam Regulations Implementation Because Website Isn’t Ready

Has the Indian telecom regulator TRAI ever got any website development done? Nothing, the size of the National Customer Preference Register with millions of subscribers, and systems to repeatedly check and scrub the register, probably implemented by NIC, can go live in less than 15 days. The guidelines were issued on December 1st, and some regulations were required to be implemented on December 15th, while the rest on 1st January 2011. Now they’ve been delayed indefinitely.

So, the industry has got a breather, time to mull over its practices, and lobby (that’s a bad word these days) for more relaxed guidelines. In the meantime, brace yourselves for an avalanche of SMS spam.
