Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is a block-chain based registration system.

According to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), telemarketers have to be registered in the DLT platform.

It is being issued in the public interest to control the SMS spam from various marketing firms.

Earlier the bulk SMS providers were required to register with TRAI.

With the updated rules, whoever wants to send promotional or transactional SMS to their customers needs to be DLT registered.

How DLT Registration Helps Enterprises and Customers?

According to TRAI guidelines, enterprises that run SMS marketing campaigns require registering themselves in the DLT platform. This has been introduced to initiate transparency of the functionalities of Enterprises.

It also helps TRAI identify the customers who initiate the SMS/voice service so that they can transparently use the service without any trust issues.

This has been implemented by all the operators and now telemarketers and enterprises can make the registration under any operator’s DLT platform following the above steps.

You’ll be receiving a unique registration number as per your registration as a telemarketer or enterprise on the first phase of DLT registration.


Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) refers to the technical infrastructure and protocols that enable simultaneous access, verification, and updating of records in an immutable manner across a network distributed across multiple entities or locations. Distributed ledgers use separate computers (called nodes) to record, share and synchronize transactions on their respective electronic ledgers (rather than centralized data storage like traditional ledgers). Each of the multiple data stores has identical data records that are maintained and controlled through a distributed network of computer servers called nodes.    

As mentioned, the blockchain revolves around an encrypted and decentralized or distributed database (a distributed part of distributed ledger technology) that acts as a ledger that stores records related to transactions, and encryption is used for every update in transactions. The name blockchain refers to “blocks” that are added to the chain of transaction records.    

The backbone of a cryptocurrency is just a variant of DLT that uses cryptographic and algorithmic methods to create and verify an ever-expanding padding-only data structure that gradually evolves into a blockchain of transactions that acts as a ledger. Since activity logs are organized into independent but related blocks, this type of DLT is often referred to as “blockchain technology”. DLT also includes technologies for creating distributed ledgers using different design principles.    

The main difference between DLT and traditional and centralized registries is that a copy of the registry is distributed to every node on the network, and each node can view, edit, and verify the registry, which helps provide trust and transparency. The main difference is that while a blockchain requires a global consensus among all nodes, a DLT can reach a consensus without having to verify the entire blockchain.    Show Source Texts

As such, current bulk DLT payment applications have abandoned this type of DLT in favor of protocols that modify the consent process to provide greater privacy and scalability. Not all of the examples cited using DLT or blockchain as the underlying technology. Since they were created with digital technology at their core, even those who do not use a blockchain-like system share the common characteristics, opportunities, and risks associated with DLT-based decentralized identity management systems.    

Using distributed technologies and different data models is the answer for many. The two technologies are not the same; blockchain is just the tip of the notorious iceberg.    

One of the most common is to think that blockchain and DLT are the same. Another important reason to focus on a proper explanation of DLT is that many people confuse it as being synonymous with Cryptocurrency Fundamentals.    

Distributed ledger technology is still relatively new to many, and certainly goes beyond Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies (this is the OUTSIDE DLT scope that most businesses want to use, leading to a debate about what terms we should use to discuss). A blockchain is a form of what is known as “distributed ledger technology” (DLT), which has enormous transformative potential in various financial and data-related industries. Interest in distributed ledger technology has grown significantly in the decade since the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, a blockchain-based cryptocurrency that has demonstrated for the first time that the technology not only works but scales and keeps Bitcoin secure. Be the first to demonstrate that the technology not only works, but scales and remains safe. Now, 21st-century technologies have enabled the next step in record-keeping through cryptography, advanced algorithms, and more powerful and near-ubiquitous computing power, making distributed ledgers an increasingly viable form of record-keeping.    

Why DLT Matters Distributed ledger technology has the potential to radically improve record-keeping by changing some of the fundamentals by which organizations collect and share data in records. DLT allows you to store all information securely and accurately using encryption. So you can think of DLT as a distributed database with some unique properties. To be considered DLT, technology does not need to structure its data into blocks.    

Blockchain/DLT are the building blocks of the “Internet of Value” and allow interactions to be recorded and “value” to be transferred peer-to-peer without the need for a centrally coordinating entity. DLT, better known as blockchain technology, was introduced by Bitcoin and is now a buzzword in the tech world given its potential in various industries and sectors. Blockchain is designed to record digital transactions or interactions and provides companies with the transparency, efficiency, and security they need. Blockchain is a distributed and immutable ledger for transferring ownership, recording transactions, tracking assets, and providing transparency, security, trust, and exchange of value in various types of digital asset transactions.    

Other computational/mathematical technologies and techniques used in blockchains include digital signatures, distributed networks (peer-to-peer), and cryptography/cryptography techniques, among others, that link ledger entries (blocks). Blockchain is a type of paper napkin, but it has become so popular that it has become ingrained in people's minds as a product. BBVA has been involved in various pilot projects using DLT and blockchain to improve and streamline various internal and transactional processes, such as the use of smart contracts in international trade.
