According to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), telemarketers have to be registered in the DLT platform.

It is being issued in the public interest to control the SMS spam from various marketing firms.
Earlier the bulk SMS providers were required to register with TRAI.
With the updated rules, whoever wants to send promotional or transactional SMS to their customers needs to be DLT registered.
It is mandatory as per the new TRAI regulations. Communication messages like OTP, verification codes, notifications, etc sent by businesses to their customers need to be registered in the TRAI DLT platform.

Steps to set up DLT are as follows:

1 > Go to DLT and look for the headers section. Here you have added headers. The header is a unique combination of characters representing the brand or company name of the message sender.


2 > Now look for the Template section click on Create Template/Add Template button. This template is for the messages that you intend to send out to your clients. This can be OTP, Transactional, or Marketing, depending on the content you intend on pushing.


  • Communication Type-SMS
  • Template Type -Service Implicit
  • Consent -remains the same
  • Select Header- choose all



3 > Message content, category, and template ID must exactly match the templates approved in the DLT platform. The message content you have added in Textlocal should not have extra/missing spaces or newlines.

You can copy the template from Yelo Notification Settings & paste it here.


  • Change tags to variables.

The syntax of variables is different in DLT and Textlocal. Please use the relevant syntax when adding templates to each platform.

Eg: An OTP template will look like “Your OTP is {#var#}” in DLT platforms


  • Add closing words (Eg Team XYZ, Thanks, Regards)
  • Click on Submit button to send the template for approval.


  • It would take 24 hrs for template approval.

4 > After your templates are approved in the DLT platforms, please add these templates and template IDs to your Yelo platform.


5 > Click Active, select template ID of approved templates, and copy it.




6 > Go to the Yelo dashboard and open DLT from integrations.


7 > In the DLT section, Click add and select the template from the dropdown list, and paste ID. Click on add to save.



8 > Once saved yelo would send SMS notifications in case of selected events.
