Sometimes it’s from your operator telling you about a new scheme or sometimes its from people trying to sell their stuff. Anyway, it’s really annoying and sometimes it consumes your precious time too so why not block them?

TRAI guided all the operators to provide users with the Do Not Disturb service so the users will decide whether to receive these calls or not.
