Frequently asked questions

Do I need to register for a sender ID?

In India, sender ID registration is recommended, but not mandatory. Messages will be delivered with a generic sender ID, such as "SMS" or "INFO," if no custom sender ID is preregistered.

What number types are available in India?

You can rent local numbers by visiting our Buy Numbers page. See pricing information.

What are the local charges for sending messages to India?

In India, customers can be charged local pricing for sending messages but first need to go through DLT registration (sender ID). If you send messages using a generic sender ID, you will be charged international pricing.

What is DLT registration?

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has mandated all entities that want to send SMS register their organizations, headers, and templates, along with required consent information, on distributed ledger technology (DLT) platforms to curb unsolicited commercial communication (UCC).

Can you help with DLT registration for sending SMS messages in India?

Check out our detailed guide on DLT registration for step-by-step instructions on the process.
