Soon you will know who is calling you? Then it will be easier for users to decide whether to pick up the call or not. Now TRAI has released the draft draft for a facility like the official True Caller. Soon the real name of the caller along with the number will also appear on your mobile. Now the same name will appear on the phone, which he has given in his mobile connection form. In this way, fake calls will be controlled and real caller will be identified.
