India is increasingly relying on distributed ledger technology (DLT) to improve operations in diverse sectors, and the latest deployment of the technology is in telecommunications.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has announced that it is using DLT to crack down on the activities of bad actors in the industry. One key problem the telecommunications regulator is tackling is Unsolicited Commercial Communication (UCC), an issue affecting millions of mobile phone users.

According to TRAI, users are faced with a barrage of messages from unregistered telemarketers, which could open the floodgates for fraud. To combat the issue, the regulator unveiled several strategies, including using distributed ledgers and collaboration with other regulators.
