Do Not disturb Services
No one likes to receive random messages from companies about promotional offers. Airtel provides DND services so that companies can’t send you spam text messages.
To turn on DND services, send a text message to 1909 saying START DND. To turn off DND services, send a text message to 1909 saying STOP DND. Once you’ve turned on the DND services, you’ll stop receiving spam promotional calls.
