But at times unexpected calls can be good. Attending to a call with patience may through up an opportunity to earn more, own up a titanium (life-time free) credit card, personal loan just when you plan to attend a wedding in family or buy a life insurance policy that may have been ignored till date.
IRDA allowing life insurance companies to promote (not sell) their policies using telemarketing is commendable especially in our country where insurance penetration is poor and ignored till the time the need for it is felt. "You may not get to buy an insurance cover when you need it. Its best bought when you have no need for it."- So true.
The initiative from TRAI to have all telemarketing calls with phone nos starting from "70" is a good attempt where the control is more with the subscriber.
