New Delhi:

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has accused Apple of being 'anti-consumer' in India. Trai had launched a mobile application in 2016 to keep a check on the telemarketers, through which telecom subscribers could register any complaints against annoying calls and SMSes.

Android users can easily install the 'Do Not Disturb' (DND) application, However, the iPhone users are not able to access the app.

Apple is facing the attack because it doesn't allow the iOS users to give any information about pesky calls and messages to the mobile operators and the authorities concerned.

It has been a year and the issue has not been resolved yet. RS Sharma who is the chairman of Trai has attacked the company over the same. Sharma told a leading daily that while Android supports the DND app, Apple has been merely discussing and not acting on it.

According to him, Apple has been having discussions with Trai on this matter but the company is yet to reach a point. He labelled the company as anti-consumer, which does not care for its customers who could have easily avoided the annoying calls and unwanted messages.
