Electricity bill alerts through Bulk SMS by Tamil Nadu Gene­ra­t­ion and Distribution Corporation


Did you know that electricity department in Tamil Nadu has brought down the use of millions of papers with just one simple solution? Well you can stop guessing because the answer lies in something which you and I use more often than anything else. The answer is short message service. Yes a simple SMS via web has helped them reduce carbon footprint and take a step towards a greener plant and more socially responsible company.

The idea was simple. They tied up with one of the many SMS websites in India. This website acts like an interface between the payer and the electricity department. Whenever a bill is generated the amount goes to the website and the website then searches for that bill number on their database. Once the contact number of the person is found, an SMS is sent via a gateway. This simple process is so useful that it has not only reduced the paperwork but has also reduced the number of default payers. Since an SMS is received instantly and can be sent multiple times, the probability of defaulting thus greatly reduces. The move has helped them increase their revenue by more than twenty five percent.

However this is just a start. If the reports published in various media channels are to be believed than this solution will be implemented in many state owned companies. Not only that, the Government is also figuring out ways to start payment through mobile just via an SMS. For this the user of the service will have to register itself for the SMS payment, wherein he will be provided with a secret code to authenticate the payment. Once authenticated by the user, the balance will be debited from the user’s bank account. Such a system will completely eliminate the use of paper. The solution is also feasible since it doesn’t involve the use of internet as in various mobile banking solutions.

Now if you are wondering that whether you too can implement this simple solution for your company than the answer is GO AHEAD! All you need to do is register with a bulk SMS service provider India and then start right away with your trial kit of free send SMS. However the free trial will have its limitations such as an ad will be shown in every SMS that would be sent. The number of SMS sent will be limited. Thirdly, you will have to enter every number again and again. With a premium account you can directly upload a list and a detailed report will be sent to the company on a daily basis.

Your vehicle insurance information available by Bulk SMS soon


The trend of mobile banking seems to be catching on, and it’s now the insurance sector that has joined the bandwagon. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority or IRDA has passed a new initiative wherein policy holders will be able to receive their vehicle insurance details via an SMS on their mobile phones. The IRDA, which was set up in 1999 to regulate and develop the insurance industry, is undergoing a digital makeover and this new proposal is a step in that direction. Earlier IRDA had directed insurance companies to launch e-policies to save costs and make the process simpler. This new step will give a boost to the usage of bulk SMS services India.

To enable this service, the regulator will be maintaining an online database of all vehicle insurance policies which would be updated on a regular basis. They are seeking the help of Road Transport Authorities and police in different States to share data on uninsured vehicles. This novel idea of using bulk SMS and SMS gateway pack spells good news for all stakeholders. Policy holders will no longer have to carry a hard copy of the insurance papers and they can get instant information about their policy details incase of an accident. The authorities too would be benefited as they can track down un-insured vehicles. For insurance companies it would help in maintaining a seamless and updated record to settle claims in a trouble-free manner.

As per this system, anyone seeking to get details of a vehicle’s insurance policy simply has to message the registration number of the vehicle to a telephone number. This number would be connected to the database and would instantly send all policy details via SMS on the mobile. The process is simple and uncomplicated and would greatly empower the consumer. Insurance companies are employing the bulk SMS packages India for this service.

With this proposal it seems that our insurance sector is all set to transform and become tech-savvy. But the policy has its trouble shooters: maintaining and regularly updating this database of lakhs of vehicles from all over India, is a monumental task. It remains to be seen if IRDA can successfully go through with this innovative and challenging plan. Once in place this initiative is sure to revolutionise vehicle insurance and even open the doors for similar changes in other areas of insurance.

Emembership number launched to become AAP member by SMS and Call


The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), keeping up with its tradition of employing new and innovative means for campaigning, has launched an open-for-all campaign called Main Bhi Aam Aadmi. Under this campaign, all those interested in attaining a membership of AAP may do so by simply sending a toll free SMS with their name, STD code and name of their Vidhan Sabha to 07798220033 / 08082807715 / 08082807716. The sender will instantly receive a text message acknowledging their membership into the party. Alternatively one can also register online at www.aamaadmiparty.org to become a member.

With this move the AAP aims to enrol 10 million people by January 26. The membership is free of cost and as per the Party; already more than 300,000 membership applications have been received. Speaking about the campaign Arvind Kejriwal added that while membership is free and open for all, a screening process would be conducted for those holding a post in the party or contesting elections. Sources within the party say that they are getting a warm response in Maharashtra, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, along with the southern states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

Launched in November 2012, the Aam Aadmi Party led by Arvind Kejriwal, was set up to fight corruption and government inefficiency from within. The party caused a major upset in the 2013 Delhi legislative assembly elections by winning 28 out of 70 seats and forming a minority government with outside support of the Congress. To gain a further stronghold and have a pan-India presence it is now using bulk SMS marketing in its campaigning. Using the SMS software India is proving to be an effective strategy in a country where almost everyone has access to mobile phones.

By using the services of SMS software India one can send SMS India and reach more people in a cheaper and effective manner. SMS marketing is more viable than internet marketing in a country like India where more people have access to mobile phones than internet. The mode of operation of AAP has always been to stay in touch with the grassroots and make the common man feel like he has a stake in the system. The SMS campaign is a step in the same direction and is so far proving to be a successful one.

RBI asks banks to charge for SMS alerts on usage


The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) issued a notification on 26 November 2013, directing all banks to charge customers for the SMS alerts on bank transactions on the basis of usage. Till now banks were imposing a fixed fee for the service. The RBI now wants banks to charge customers on the basis of actual usage of this service.

The RBI commented that, ”Banks are advised to leverage the technology available with them and the telecom service providers to ensure that such (SMS) charges are levied on all customers on actual usage basis”. This is to ensure equity and reasonableness in charges imposed by the banks. This directive is part of the Second Quarter Review of Monetary Policy Statement 2013-14 that was announced on October 29, 2013. The new change is applicable to all banks in India including Urban Commercial Banks and Scheduled Commercial Banks.

To provide this best bulk SMS India service, banks use the services of bulk SMS service providers. The bulk SMS company charges the banks for the SMS sent. Banks in turn pass on the costs to the customers. This amount is deducted annually from the customer’s account. At present banks are charging Rs.60 annually for this service. With this move the banks wanted to tap the lucrative bulk SMS marketing India.

The SMS alerts system has been functioning since March 2011 when the RBI directed banks to send online alerts to customers informing them of all types of transactions made from their account. This step was taken to increase security and reduce bank frauds. The RBI however had not set a guideline mentioning the amount to be charged for the service. When the State Bank of India began charging a fixed amount of Rs.60 annually, other banks followed suit and began charging the same amount.

The customers would definitely welcome this move. While SMS alerts are extremely useful every customer does not use the service equally and hence the charges too should be as per usage. Supporting its decision to levy charges based on usage, the RBI also said that banks and telecom service providers have the latest technologies available with them so charging customers in accordance with actual usage should not be a difficult task.

Modi for PM fund donation campaign launched by BJP


The supporters of Narendra Modi have a new means of showing allegiance to the Gujarat Chief Minister. The BJP has launched a Modi-for-PM fund wherein people can make donations to the party for the upcoming election campaign. The payments can be made in person or online on a new website launched in New Delhi.

The site will accept donations from Rs. 10 and Rs. 1000 and those making donations will receive a receipt via messaging SMS and emails. BJP chief Rajnath Singh inaugurated the initiative with a Rs. 1000 donation and kick starting the one-note, one vote campaign. The campaign aims to bring the party closer to the voters and establish a connect with the public. In the words of Rajnath Singh- I believe the launch of this website will develop an emotional connection between the party and our supporters.

The BJP has also roped in IITians into the party in a bid to modernise it and attract the young voters. Subodh Sharma, K K Sharma and Shalab Sharma are some of the new faces in the BJP. Besides this, Ashok Saini, belonging to the corporate sector and Vikas Guliani, a technical consultant, have also joined the party along with some former defence officials. The BJP is undergoing a complete makeover to present itself as a strong contender for the upcoming general elections.

Various political parties like the newly formed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have begun to employ technology like websites and SMS advertisement to extend the reach of their campaigns. Bulk messages are an efficient, cheap and quick way to reach thousands of people instantly. Using SMS gateway services allows parties to advertise extensively while cutting down the huge costs involved in other modes of campaigning. Premium SMS gateway can help send personalised messages at the right target group thereby increasing the reach of the party.

The BJP also plans to start another campaign to collect iron for a Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat. The statue is Modi’s dream project and will feature a massive statue twice the size of the Statue of Liberty. The BJP is creating awareness among the public using new and innovation means. It remains to be seen if the one-note, one vote campaign can work magic for the BJP and Narendra Modi in the general elections.

200 million text sms a day collecting by National Security Agency


The US National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting and storing nearly 200 million SMS messages a day from around the world as part of the NSA program code named “Dishfire”. This revelation is a result of the joint investigation by Britain’s Guardian newspaper and Channel 4 News, who were aided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The program collects “pretty much everything it can” rather than just storing information from suspicious surveillance targets. The UK spy agency GCHQ also made use of this data to keep a tab of “untargeted and unwarranted” communications in UK. The NSA through this program has also been able to store data about people’s contacts, travel plans and credit card transactions.

This has elicited a strong reaction from the public. Already wary of SMS marketing software that delivers internet SMS, which people sometimes find intrusive, this news has further invaded the privacy of citizens across the globe. The case of US spying on individuals under no suspicion of illegal activity came to the forefront after Snowden leaked secrets of the NSA’s mass “eavesdropping” activities. In addition to over 200 million text messages a day, the NSA was also collecting more than 5 million missed-call alerts a day, over 800,000 financial transactions from credit cards, over 1.6 million border crossing using roaming alerts, 110,000 names from electronic business cards and travel data along with cancellations and airplane delays.

While the world is outraged at this direct attack on privacy, the NSA insists that its activities and collection of data is limited to and only deployed against valid intelligence targets. It claims that the collection is not arbitrary as claimed by the investigations and all data is “lawfully” collected. The NSA also maintains that it actively removes extraneous data that is related to innocent civilians.

Mr Snowden, who lifted the lid off the scandal, has been charged with espionage in the US. Civil rights and privacy groups are demanding an explanation of this blatant intrusion into the private lives of citizens. People all over the world make use of SMS gateways to communicate personal or official information. It is extremely ironic that USA, which claims to be the upholder of free speech and sovereignty, is involved in an exercise that is stripping the people of their basic right to privacy and the freedom to exchange personal messages.

Congress Party launches Bulk SMS Service for AICC Updates


The Congress Party has launched a mass text messaging service to get the latest happenings and alerts from the All Indian Congress Committee (AICC) sessions. Those interested may get the notifications by giving a missed call on 1800 208 20 20. This new initiative is a step towards utilising technology to reach the common man. While the BJP has been tech-savvy and has an updated website, the Congress was seen lagging in these aspects. With the introduction of this sms messaging service, it too has joined the bandwagon.

Such practices, however are not new. Using unlimited free SMS for campaigning has been in vogue for some time now. Banks, Retailers, Hotels, etc have been using the internet SMS for marketing purposes since 2000. Now it's the turn of politicians to employ this tool to create awareness among their vote banks regarding the Party’s contributions to society. Barack Obama successfully used the SMS messaging in his 2008 US presidential campaign.

SMS services are becoming an important political tool not just for campaigning, but also for smooth functioning within the Party and keeping all Party workers informed of any updates. The Indian National Congress too has realised the importance of this tool and therefore is making use of it in a bid to cover lost ground, to prepare for the general elections. Since the mobile phone is now available with almost every section of the society, this initiative may prove to be a crucial step towards creating awareness among the voters.

Aadhaar number to be informed by SMS to member


The Unique Identification Development Authority of India (UIDAI) is all set to utilize the mobile SMS services for delivering Aadhaar number to applicants. This move comes in wake of the complaints by applicants regarding delays in getting the Aadhaar number. The Aaadhar number is a 12 digit number issued by the UIDAI, which may be used as identification or address proof anywhere in the country. A new application for sending bulk SMS has already been tested and the SMS server is all set to drop your Aadhaar numbers in your message inbox.

Employing the bulk SMS through internet services, UIDAI can speed up the process of delivering Aadhaar Card numbers thereby saving time and increasing efficiency. It would prove to be a boon to people who have had to wait for upto eight months to get their Aadhaar numbers. It would allow them to avail all services linked to the Aadhaar card without physically possessing the card. UIDAI has teamed up with the Department of Information Technology (DIT) for this novel initiative. So far over 56 crore Aadhaar numbers have been issued and this number is expected to increase faster with the use of SMS services using the cheapest bulk SMS provider.

The Aadhaar card provides every citizen of India with a unique 12 digit identification number. The enrollment for the card is free and it is valid for a lifetime. It is a voluntary service that can be availed by every resident. The Aadhaar card aims to have an integrated data base of all citizens with a view to eliminate duplicate and fake identities in government and private databases. In future the Aadhaar card is expected to provide access to services like banking, mobile phone connections and other Govt and Non-Govt services.

The Reserve Bank Of India has already issued a notification allowing banks to enable customers to open all savings accounts using letters issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for Aadhaar numbers as a valid Know your Customer (KYC).

The only hitch in the SMS service for Aadhaar card is that this service will only be available to those who have registered their mobile numbers at the time of applying for the Aadhaar card. Considering that only 27% people have provided their mobile numbers at the time of enrollment, this might prove to be a major hindrance to the new initiative.

Role of Bulk SMS Services in Small Business


Technology is changing the face of marketing everyday with new and innovative means of reaching the consumers. New means of communication have made it easier to reach and connect with potential customers. Bulk SMS services are one such novel tool that aid marketing. In a world where mobile phones are omnipresent and almost all segments of the population have access to them, bulk SMS service are proving to be an effective and cheap means of advertisement especially for small and upcoming businesses.

Bulk SMS refers to the facility to send a large number of messages to mobile phones. They are increasingly being used by the media, banks, retailers etc for advertisement or information dissemination purposes. The market is replete with bulk SMS providers who offer bulk Sms services at extremely competent rates, which means one does not need any technical training on how to send bulk SMS. This facility greatly benefits small businesses as the cost of advertisement is reduced due to cheap bulk SMS India has to offer.

Bulk SMS allow a company to reach thousands of customers easily. They may be used to deliver alerts, information, reminders etc, depending on the marketer’s objective. There are several benefits of using bulk SMS services:
• They are more effective than email because of constant access to mobile phones by everyone.

• They are much cheaper and cost effective as compared to other means of advertisement like newspapers, T.V. commercials etc.

• One can constantly stay in touch with the customers and inform them about any special offers and events.

It is amply clear that bulk SMS are the new marketing trend as they are cost effective, instant and time saving. All it needs is a bulk SMS software and a database of mobile numbers of the target group. Sceptics argue that bulk SMS infuriate or annoy the receiver, due to the deluge of unwanted messages. However this does not hold true of all consumers and is more of a generalised statement than a fact. Besides nowadays customers themselves sign up to receive SMS alerts of services as it is convenient.

Bulk SMS are increasingly being used as a marketing tool by business houses that wish to expand the reach of their business and target more customers. The power of mobile marketing with its innumerable advantages is proving to be an effective means for both the users and receivers. For now it seems like bulk SMS is here to stay.

SMS alerts on overcharging as you board train soon


The Indian Railways is planning to introduce a new SMS service to warn travellers of overcharging by the catering staff on trains. This is another step by the Railways in their endeavour to modernise the system in tune with technology. Having already introduced the successful and hugely popular IRCTC website for train booking and information, the Indian Railways is now utilising bulk SMS solutions in a bid to tap the SMS marketing in India segment. This move will ensure that customers are not fleeced by the caterers and staff in the trains.

As per this initiative, an SMS alert would be sent to passengers at the time of boarding the train, advising them to demand a rate card from the caterer. The rates of meals available on the train would also be listed in the SMS. Incase a caterer refuses to comply with the rules or produce the rate card, the passenger can register a complaint on the catering complaint number mentioned in the SMS. For those not travelling with E-tickets, pamphlets and posters with the same information would be distributed in the train. All issues thus registered would be solved at the next halt itself, ensuring a speedy rectification of the problem.

A pilot project has already been initiated by the Western Railways on the Mumbai to Gorakhpur Awadh Express and the Mumbai to Delhi Paschim Express. The service would soon be available on all trains. Western Railway is being assisted by Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to maintain a record of cell phone numbers of those booking their tickets through this site. Bulk SMS are being used by a variety of service providers from airlines to hotel chains etc, and the bulk SMS prices too are very affordable. Also such services are easily available on various bulk SMS websites. Hence it would not cause a hole in the Railways pocket to initiate this service.

The catering complaint number for passengers is 9004441955. Passengers can also send an Email on cateringcomplaint(at)wr.railnet.gov.in. The complaints that are registered would be immediately forwarded to the Railway authorities. This information would definitely prove handy to passengers and would protect them from the arbitrary rates being charged by the railway caterers.
