  1. After you receive the Trading Message on your phone, report the unsolicited Trading Message to The Telephone Regulatory Authority of India, TRAI.
  2. Use the EDIT or FORWARD option, At the END of the Received Trading Message, INSERT a COMMA,  followed by SENDER NUMBER, followed by ANOTHER COMMA, and INSERT DATE of receiving and forward this to 1909.
  3. If the SENDER NUMBER is not available, use SENDER NAME. Use copy and paste to make the process easier.
