Why is it necessary to register the entity on ALL DLT Platform?
Answer: As per the process we (STPL) has been made to understand that we have to get all our users registered on whichever telecom operator's connectivity we are using for SMS delivery. For e.g. If we are using Multi operator connectivity like Jio, Airtel, BSNL, Videocon, VI, Vodafone etc. then all our users have to register on all these operator's DLT Platform. We (STPL) also have to register as Telemarketer on all these operator's DLT Platform.
Who is charging Rs. 5000+GST (Rs.5900) for DLT registration?
Answer: Rs.5900 has to be paid to the telecom operator as DLT registration charge. We (STPL) are not taking that charge. Also we are getting the entities registered for free whenever the operators are giving us the communication of the same.
If we don't register on DLT platform will our SMS delivery be stopped?
Answer: As we have multiple operator Connectivity we will try to pass on the maximum possible flexibility to our esteemed client's, but we (STPL) are the aggregators of SMS service wherein we are dependent on the telecom service providers like VILPOWER, Videocon (Smart Ping), BSNL, Airtel, MTNL etc. So in case these operators implement the rules strictly as per TRAI mandate then we will be forced to comply with the norms and will not be able to process SMS from Unregistered Entities.
