Banks : Do Not Disturb Me

As per RBI regulation I guess all banks should have a "Do Not Distrub Me" or "Do not call me" :) web page inorder to value customers privacy.

I get atleast couple of telemarketing calls a day from one bank or other. Its really irritating and i was looking for a way to avoid them totally. Only then i came to know about these "Don't call registeration pages" for various banks. Looooong Live RBI :) :)

1. ICICI Bank - As per the site itseems it would take 15 days for the number to be removed from the telemarketing list!

2. Citibank -- I didn't find the time frame in this site.

3. Deutsche bank -- As per the site itseems it would take 30 days for the number to be removed from the telemarketing list!

4. Standard Chartered Bank -- As per the site itseems it would take 30 days for the number to be removed from the telemarketing list!

5. HDFC Bank -- As per the site itseems it would take 45 days for the number to be removed from the telemarketing list!

6. ABN Amro Bank -- I didn't find the time frame in this site.

Hope this would be useful for many of you guys too :) By the way, if you guys find any such pages for Hutch /Airtel please let me know. Those guys are also really irritating :(

http://www.airtel.in/dont.htm -- this is only for Mobile numbers. But I have a LAND line connection with them. Is there a way to key-in my land line number and say "DND" ?

I think I activated this stuff, some kinda 3 months back and I still get 3-4 promotional calls.
Any one facing this problem?
