Why this petition matters

Started by B Mohan Kumar

The telephone rang in the afternoon, when I was having a nap. As I got up to pick the call, I lost my orientation, slipped & fell down resulting in a shoulder dislocation. This was just an automated call, asking for feedback. There are other times when similar calls land when you are driving & distract you. These calls when made to residents / senior citizens are dangerus as they rush to attend the land line calls, and these are normally in the afternoons, when they are resting.. These are marketing or irrelevant reminder automated calls from BSNL, Railways and many other organizations. Most of the calls originage from BSNL, railways or other telecom operator, banking & NBFC offering personal loans.

There are innumerable mishaps which have happened because of these calls.

Though there is a DnD mechanism, it does not seem to work. Should'nt these callers be totally banned and those who flout privacy be severely penalised?
