New Delhi, Jul 31 (UNI) The Supreme Court today directed the Centre to cancel the licences of all those telemarketing companies which do not get themselves registered under the Do Not Disturb (DND) scheme.

A bench headed by Justice A K Mathur issued the direction to the Centre to start cancelling the licences of all those telemarketing companies, which were not registered under the DND, from tomorrow.

The directive was issued on a PIL seeking to ban unsolicited calls on mobiles.

Lately, the telemarketing companies have started making calls which have objectionable messages.

The petitioners had sought directions from the apex court to these companies not to make any unsolicited calls.
