Repeated callers will have to pay Rs 10000, know how
If the harassing caller’s number becomes active and is again found to be violating the rules, the use of the new connection will be restricted to 20 calls and 20 SMS daily for six months.
The time has come for those who call again and again to sell their goods. The Department of Telecom has made preparations to crack down on those who harass customers with unwanted calls. Under the new rules, if telecallers harass you beyond a limit, they will be fined. Not only this, if they do not deter you from harassing you, then they will be put in the suspicious list. If they still do not agree, then they can be banned for up to six months. In the new proposals, very strict provisions have been made to rein in telecallers who repeatedly harass the customer.
Will have to pay Rs 10,000
According to the proposal of the Department of Telecom, the caller making unwanted calls can be fined Rs 10,000 for every call and SMS. In this, this penalty will be imposed after violation of up to 50 calls or SMS. Under the proposal, there is a provision to impose a fine of Rs 1,000 per violation for zero to 10 violations, Rs 5,000 per violation for 10 to 50 violations and Rs 10,000 per violation for more than 50 violations.
This way the verification will be done
It has also been recommended in the proposals that in the event of re-verification, all numbers will be disconnected and the IMEI associated with them will be put in the suspicious list. Those harassing by calling and messaging from the new connection from the mobile with the IMEI number entered in the gray list will have to re-verify. If the harassing caller’s number becomes active after reverification and is again found to be violating the rules, the use of the new connection will be restricted to 20 calls and 20 SMS per day for six months.
