We have been getting too many enquiries to understand the operator code when you receive an SMS on your mobile handset.
Sometimes, you may receive SMS as DM-SMSGAT or TM-SGCSMS. This code TM or DM is generated basically to find out that who has terminated the SMS service and if any pesky SMS is involved then they can be penalyzed as per TRAI norms and policies.
First table contains all the SMS termination operators and their code. And in the second table, the service area code where the operator based and sent from.
