According to an all-new report released by a respected media outlet yesterday, leading Indian IT firm Tech Mahindra is all set to deploy an ‘anti-spam call solution' that will make use of blockchain technology.
A Closer Look At The Matter
As per a spokesperson for Mahindra, the firm's latest spam-filter solution will make use of a framework that allows it to be fully compliant with the regulations laid out by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
For those of our readers who might not be aware, the TRAI recently released a list of guidelines that are designed to help protect Indian mobile phone subscribers from receiving any form of Unsolicited Commercial Communications (UCC). These guidelines are all set to come into effect by the end of this month.
In regards to these latest developments, Rajesh Dhuddu – a Blockchain specialist at Tech Mahindra – revealed that TRAIs aforementioned policies have been welcomed by the masses at large and will affect the lives of nearly 800 million mobile phone users.
He then went on to add:
“The solution uses blockchain tech to save and share a user’s incoming contact settings, i.e. who they have consented to receive communications from. Tech Mahindra says they provided proof of concept for this solution, in conjunction with Microsoft, to TRAI back in 2018.”
Additionally, when talking about blockchain, Dhuddu stated that by making use of this technology, the Indian government was taking a massive step in order to restore some of the public’s trust deficit in Government to Citizen (G2C) services and business transactions.
“Blockchain, with its key features such as Secure Hash Algorithms, Consensus based decision making, immutable transactions and distributed ledgers, serves as a panacea for growing trust deficit not only in G2C services but also in overall business world.”
In closing out this article, it should be pointed out over the course of the past 6-12 months, Tech Mahindra's innovation team has been working closely with Samsung in order to implement the firm's Next ledger technology into its native governance module. According to insider sources, this arrangement will allow Samsung to increase its market clout as well as become more dominant within the Indian tech market.
