As of now, every enterprise in India needs to send out the Principal Entity (PE) ID along with their SMS Message using bulk SMS portals. Now, Operators have asked to send the template with DLT Template ID when an SMS is terminated. So, every enterprise or an individual needs to register their template and map their headers. Once your template is approved, DLT portals would give you an unique DLT Template ID which needs to be sent during your SMS termination, failing to which your SMS will be failed and you will bear the SMS cost.
So, we request all our customers to register their template and fetch the DLT Template ID and add it in our SMSGatewayCenter portal.
