Chairman PD Vaghela will propose a unified KYC system to investigate fraudous calls ...

According to a top official on Sunday, telecom regulator TRAI will propose to establish a unified know-your-customer system, which should be accessible to all telecom operators.

TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela said he is unable to locate the actual culprit at the moment who has slashed in fraudulent messages, which the regulator is contemplating several mechanisms to resolve the problem.

"There should be a unified KYC (know-your-customer) system. All telecom operators must be able to use it. This is what we will use in one of the consultation papers, which we will be discussing on a mandatory caller identification," Vaghela said.

The chairman of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said spammers have started using another number after blocking their previous number and using proxy servers, and the regulator is working with service providers to identify potential callers and spammers.

TRAI will also look to safeguard privacy concerns among persons who do not want their number to be displayed when they make calls, according to the TITI.

A new telecom measure has imposed up to a one-year prison sentence for giving false identification to users seeking fraudulent information to detect frauds and criminal activities.

The law is intended to allow KYC to be applied for calls and messages sent via internet calling and messaging apps.

According to reports in May, telecom regulator TRAI will soon begin consultation on forming a framework for the blinking of a caller''s KYC-based name on phone screens.

The Department of Telecom (DoT) has received a reference to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).

According to TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela, the consultation on this topic is expected to begin in a few months.
