Let’s us understand what is SMS SenderID or SMS Title.
SenderID or SMS Title is the 6 letter unique code which must be approved by the Indian Government. It’s the same code which you see normally when we receive any message from any business not from any one’s personal number. It looks something like this.
ICICI Bank – TM-ICICIB
SBI Credit Card – JX-SBICRD
APPTOFIT – VK-APTFIT
Note that the there are some extra character with hipen (-) which is not related to us we don’t need to bother about that. All we need to decide is 6 characters after the hiphen (-).
