What is DLT registration?   

DLT is a government mandated technology that helps to track and verify the origin and delivery of SMS messages, ensuring that they are sent and received by the intended parties. If you are a business or organization looking to send bulk SMS anywhere in India, you need to complete DLT (Distributed Ledger Technology) registration prior to sending SMS to any users in India.  

Why is DLT registration required to send SMS? 

DLT registration is a mandatory requirement set by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and must be complied with by any organization that wants to send SMS messages in India. The technology is designed to reduce spam, increase telecom subscriber satisfaction and improve trust and safety. 

How to apply for DLT registration for sending SMS in India? 

Any business or organization based in India which has a valid business registration and wishes to send SMS to users in India can apply.  

Individuals are not eligible to apply for DLT registration.  

If you meet these requirements, you can start the DLT registration process by filling out the application form and submitting it to TRAI. You may also need to pay a fee to complete the registration process. If you need help with the DLT registration process, you can contact us. The EnableX team will help complete DLT registration, and you can then use EnableX’s powerful SMS API to send SMS anywhere in India! 

 How does it work?  

The DLT process works as follows: 

  1. A business registers with the authorised DLT providers as an ENTITY and receives an ENTITY ID 
  2. The business must then register an alpha-numeric or numeric SENDER-ID / HEADER, which is the “from” identifier which is shown to the recipient when the SMS is received on their phone for approval. 
  3. Once the SENDER-ID/HEADER is approved, the business must register the templates of all SMS it intends to send and get them approved. For each approved template, the business received a unique TEMPLATE ID. 
  4. Using these information points, viz the ENTITY ID, the SENDER-ID and the TEMPLATE ID, the business can send SMS to users through any SMS delivery providers like EnableX. 

 How to register for DLT in India?  

The application form for DLT registration can be found on the TRAI website or at any authorized DLT registration center.
