Mobile Operator codes in India for SMS

I thought this piece of info would be useful to you all, in-case you have not got hold of these till now:

Service Provider Code Service Area Code
Aircel, Dishnet Wireless D Andhra Pradesh A
Bharti Airtel A Assam S
BSNL B Bihar B
BPL Mobile/Loop Telecom L Delhi D
Datacom Solutions C Gujarat G
HFCL Infotel H Haryana H
Idea Cellular I Himachal Pradesh I
MTNL M Jammu & Kashmir J
Reliance Communications R Karnataka X
Reliance Telecom E Kerala L
S tel S Kolkata K
Shyam Telecom Y Madhya Pradesh Y
Spice Telecom P Maharashtra Z
Swan Telecom W Mumbai M
Tata Teleservices T North East N
Unitech Group U Orissa O
Vodafone Group V 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.

Yup. Mobile Messaging appears to be the next big thing in spamming! Unlike Emails we do not have a Junk Folder with Filter here!!

i went through TRAI procedure to lodge complaint .. it takes 28 days to stop the mass sms after receipt of complain !!!! meanwhile the telemarketer can continue bombing me ..
