The Telephone Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Department of Telecom (DoT) may soon launch a feature that will enable the caller’s name to flash on the screen of the other person being dialled. The name will be based on KYC details. According to a report, TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela said, ‘We have just received a reference and will start working on it soon. When someone calls, the name will appear as per KYC.

Let us know what is KYC-based caller name:

  • The name will be shown as per the details on KYC.
  • Often the KYC process is done while buying a new SIM or changing an old SIM.
  • According to the telecom companies, with the help of internet the phone will be able to display the name on the screen.
  • As per reports, it will provide transparency and users will not need to download multiple apps. There are huge risks to data privacy in such apps.
