The telecom regulator will meet companies and other stakeholders on March 27 to discuss spam calls, making it the third such discussion since February.

The meeting by P D Vaghela, the chairman of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, is part of a multi-pronged approach to end unsolicited commercial communication (UCC) using technology, regulations, directions, and monitoring, said Trai on Wednesday.

Officials told Business Standard the meeting will review earlier discussions and aim to formulate a framework for sharing UCC data on distributed ledger technology (DLT) platforms, which are used by telecom companies for keeping and managing the records of sender IDs and templates.
