This is an old news , not sure if actually implemented or not 

Anyways the news portal seems crude and just meant for generating internet traffic with sensational headlines , hence unreliable.

Nothing much will change. Just because now caller ID will show some "XYZ Kumar" is calling claiming to be from SBI/RBI/Police/ED etc doesn't mean one can go & check if there is a XYZ Kumar working there. It only means that now spammer/fraudster has to say the real name under whose ID that number was bought but then mostly such IDs are fake or of poor ppl bought with money.

TRAI people must be fined for such bevakooki wala idea.

How it is going to solve the spam problem? They are many good solutions available, if they want to implement ... which they are implementing this "shit idea" and wasting the money. 

Now when my daughter will call ... it will show "my name" to receiver instead of her name. 

Almost everybody if fed-up with the spam calls for soooooooooooooo many years and they can't find a solution for this. Trai seniors MUST be fined for their deficiency of services.... wasting money and time.

How will this work for the actual scammers(big MNCs). Do they get these numbers in the name of different employees or the company name?

Almost nobody dials from their company provided mobile number for such spam calls unless it is to an existing customer from their relationship manager.

To take a line from Office Space
It's not that that TRAI is just lazy...they just dont care.

As long as they can hold on to their 10-4 jobs by being chamchas of the govt and get a paycheck they are content

This is one step closer to avoid misuse of id's saying I am from Police Dept, because now we can know their names and we can cross verify that info they said with the nearest police station before the scammers start their frauds xDDDD

a good baby step, this will not solve all spammer issues, but its a GREAT FIRST STEP smile


good idea:) and wise move as a start


Hahahaha Deadly move for Truecaller and similar apps END OF THEIR LIFECYCLE

Truecaller has many advantage like

  • Series Blocking
  • Name Blocking
  • Robo detection
  • Details without saving number 
  • Detect OTP and Auto Delete OTP message after some time
  • and More

It does not matter much if name displaying or not 

It will reduce call spam for some days later they will find loopholes. 

If TRAI really want to help us they should ban on ROBO calls

Best way is not to pick any unknown call unless you expect it. 😃

I had written to TRAI many years back to make a centralised online phone directory (like the old telephone directory books if anyone remembers) for both landline & mobile  numbers (including private players along with mtnl/bsnl) available with the actual registered name & location which can be looked up for any mobile or land line numbers.

But never heard back from them then!

Truecaller existed then, but wasn't this popular grinning

Truecaller itself...is big problem, sharing information to other users. simply use Block on your Phone and if red screen just ignore of unknown numbers.

Really looking forward to it. I get around 30-40 spam calls on my primary number every day. Unfortunately, I can't change it since it's my main contact number.

What I do is block them everytime so a database of spam callers are created in your phone and next time they call you won't be bothered. I see many alerts that XYZ call was blocked 21 times etc....

GOI = Nach na jane angan deheda. They keep beating around the bush in all possible stupid ways.

Even telcos don't give a shit to trai orders. It's nothing but just nautanki.

Main issue is that Telecom Companies after paying hefty spectrum fees both under and over the table need

to recoup their money, so they have to sell/distribute connections and allow spam.

If they charge 1000 rs for new sim (like earlier for lifetime validity) and 1rs/min then calls will reduce.

Rightnow if a person makes hardly 4-5 calls/ day and 1000 calls/day are paying the same, talk of some logic.

Instead of giving unlimited they should cap it so that its used genuinely
