Explanation of Bulk SMS codes
« on: January 21, 2012, 08:52:05 PM »
Recently, SMSs from Banks, Service Providers, Companies have started prefixing something like ID, AT, VK''  ' etc. What''  's all this after all!!?

Normally these SMSs originates from a Bulk SMS provider where you can use 11 digit Alpha-Numeric characters as "Sender". But the new TRAI regulation insisted bulk SMS providers to restrict the "Sender ID" to 8 characters. Other three characters should be used to specify who is the service provider & where it''  's originated from. Say for example: HDFCBANK sends an SMS to you using bulk SMS provider located at Tamil Nadu which uses Airtel. You will receive it as AT-HDFCBANK. First character specifies which service provider the message is being originated & the second character specifies from which location it''  's originated. Here is the table which has details of these SMS codes:

Service Provider............ Code
Aircel, Dishnet Wireless........ D
Bharti Airtel....................... A
BSNL................................ B
BPL Mobile/Loop Telecom...... L
Datacom Solutions............... C
HFCL Infotel....................... H
Idea Cellular....................... I
MTNL................................ M
Reliance Communications...... R
Reliance Telecom................ E
S tel................................. S
Shyam Telecom.................. Y
Spice Telecom.................... P
Swan Telecom................... W
Tata Teleservices............... T
Unitech Group.....................U
Vodafone Group.................. V


Service Area............... Code
Andhra Pradesh.................. A
Assam.............................. S
Bihar................................ B
Delhi................................ D
Gujarat............................ G
Haryana........................... H
Himachal Pradesh............... I
Jammu & Kashmir............... J
Karnataka........................ X
Kerala............................. L
Kolkata........................... K
Madhya Pradesh............... Y
Maharashtra..................... Z
Mumbai........................... M
North East....................... N
Orissa............................. O
Punjab........................... P
Rajasthan........................ R
Tamil Nadu....................... T
UP-East........................... E
UP-West......................... W
West Bengal.................... V

So, combination of these two constitutes the first two digit of ''  '"Sender''  ' followed by an hyphen (-) & actual sender name.
