List Of SMS Prefix Code In India

Many of the users who receive the message in India wonder why this type of message comes like AM, VM, and AD.

I remember when I first tried to understand

It was REALLY confusing.

No information on the Internet

No one has any idea of these terms nor explaining about it. I have done lots of research and compiled this information in very simple manner so that you can easily understand.

All BULK SMS Service originates from a Bulk Messaging Gateway Providers In India.

The TRAI ( Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India ) regulation implemented a rule bulk SMS providers to restrict the SMS Sender Name with Prefix of their OPERATOR NAME along with STATE NAME Where SMS Originate from (SMS Come from).

  • In India, you might get an SMS daily basis from banks, insurance, schools, and so many companies.

    • As per TRAI regulation, each mobile network operator has given some initials for pushing SMS like AD – that is Airtel  Mobile Network and Delhi Circle.

     

    • so I will give you a chart where you can find which mobile network your SMS originates from…

    Here’s my take on the List of SMS Prefix  insights from the infographic

    Few years back  SMS was Originating from many operators in india, it was very cheaper cost , so everyone used to buy sms from different operator and flood the marketing message to user mobile via BULK SMS Blast, this was annoyed by many users , so finally TRAI Indian telecom regulatory come up with a plan to find out which network and which state these sms comes from. They have given unique identification for every Mobile Operator with every Indian states.

    You can see that clearly in my infographic Image.

    Understanding bulk SMS and its regulatory guidelines using AM, VM, AD and other SMS prefix codes for Marketing  and Non Marketing

    What is its significance all prefix sender id?

     

    If there is a user who registered for DND SMS – you can find my DND SMS ( Don’t Disturb ) in these page. They can easily complain to their network operator they received unwanted marketing message received from these companies using these SMS Prefix Sender Name, The Mobile network operator will immediately complain to TRAI and take action against these Mobile Network Operator ,

    This help Telecom regulatory to avoid Unnecessary violation of SMS Marketing without user consent.

    Let Me explain  with some real-time examples

    BH-CANNYI – as you can see in below image user might get confused why BH comes before my CANNY INFOTECH Sender id, B stands for BSNL and H Stand for Haryana – CANNY INFOTECH  company purchase these SMS Service from BSNL Gateway located in Haryana

     

    As per TRAI regulation allows CANNY INFOTECH like big companies, they can send SMS to their respective customers Non Marketing Messages sometimes called Transactional Messages, They should not send Marketing Messages, If they violate user can compliant to TRAI with help of mobile operator they will take action against companies who violate SMS Regulation set by TRAI, they will easily find Airtel Delhi Supplied SMS to these Companies.
