To get your templates approved in SandeshTeh portal, log in to your SandeshTech account > Templates & Drafts > Add required templates following process defined in our template guide > Click ‘Request New Template’. All templates will be approved within 2 business hours.In addition to the above, please follow the below DLT registration steps to send SMS.  After adding your Entity/Registration ID, any SMS sent without your PE ID and associated DLT-approved headers will be blocked by operators.

  1. Add Entity ID/Registration ID in your SandeshTech account – Please follow Step 1 to register your business entity on DLT platforms and add Entity ID/Registration ID in your account.
  2. Share DLT-approved headers: Please follow Step 2 to register your headers on DLT platforms. Post registration, please email a screenshot of your DLT account displaying the approved headers to support@sandeshtech.com – promotional accounts require 6-digit numeric headers and non-promotional (Others) accounts require 6-character alpha headers.
  • Promotional Account: Can be used for sending offers or promotions to prospects and customers. Messages are sent only to non-DND numbers between 9am and 9pm.
  • Non-Promotional (Others) Account: Can be used for sending service implicit, service explicit, and transactional SMS such as OTPs, order confirmations, service updates and other notifications to your registered users. These messages can be sent 24/7.

Next phase of DLT regulations:

  • Add DLT-approved templates in SandeshTech: After your templates are approved in the DLT platforms, please add these templates and template ID in your SandeshTech account. This will ensure that SandeshTech can pass along all the required parameters without requiring you to change your current APIs. Please see the detailed process in Step 6.

DLT Registration & Sandesh Tech– Where and how can we help?

  • Mandatory new regulations: Please note that the new TRAI regulations have been enforced by the telecom operators and there is nothing SandeshTeh can do to push back the implementation. Without the necessary sender names (headers) approvals at any one of the DLT portals, your SMS will be blocked by telecom operators.
  • There maybe certain vendors allowing  transactional traffic under common headers but this is against TRAI regulations (not to mention the inferior customer experience). We recommend getting your own sender names/headers by registering on DLT portals!
  • Approvals stuck at DLT portals: The DLT portals are maintained and supported by respective telecom operators. SandeshTech staff has neither visibility nor control on why and where the entity (PE) registrations are stuck. The respective DLT portals will directly communicate with you over email regarding approval status, any missing documentation etc. Please check your emails and provide additional docs as needed.
  • We have limited “read” access to your basic details only after your KYC verification is done and after you select Sandesh Technology as the Telemarketer.
  • Process changes: We have detailed our understanding of the registration processes and provided a step-by-step guide on how to register and get headers approved on 4 portals (Videocon, VIL, BSNL, Jio) in this webpage. However, we observed the processes may go through small changes – we will keep the information updated on this page. Once again, SMS providers and aggregators (such as SandeshTech) have no control over these changes.
  • Registration fees: The fees imposed by different DLT portals is also outside our control. We are only providing you with the available options (where the processes are clear to us) and encouraging those who can to register on multiple portals for speedy approvals.
  • Approval timelines: Due to heavy rush at the operator portals, we have been informed that the approval queues are constantly increasing, implying increasing approval timelines and SLAs.
