What Is KYC-Based Caller Name Display? How Will It Be Beneficial ?

The Telephone Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Department of Telecom (DoT) may soon roll out a feature that will enable the flashing of the name of the caller on the screen of the other person being dialled to. The name will be based on the KYC details. According to a report by PTI, TRAI Chairman PD Vaghela said, "We have just received a reference, and we will start work on this soon. Name as per KYC will appear when someone calls." 
Trai and DoT are expected to start the discussion on this in the next couple of months.
What is a KYC-based caller name? 5 Points
It is the name of the person as specified in the KYC details.
KYC process is often completed while buying a new SIM or changing the old one.
According to Vaghela, "The mechanism will enable name-appearing on a phone screen, in accordance with KYC done by Telecom companies as per DoT norms."
According to reports, this will provide transparency and will allow the users to do away with the apps that do the same function. There are huge data privacy risks in such apps.
It is being said that once the whole framework of the functioning of the process is worked out, more details will be available.

TRAI recognize the importance of reaching out to the consumers not only to inform them of the measures taken to safeguard their interests, but also to obtain feedback, and to involve them in the decision-making processes of the TRAI.

In consonance with the vision of digital India, TRAI places greater reliance on technology to communicate with consumer base of over 1 billion spread across its vast geography. TRAI has launched consumer oriented Mobile Apps
