If you have a small business, it is a good idea to get a toll free number. It has been proven over and over that businesses receive far more calls from customers if a number is available to them. It is beneficial to snag one which spells out a term or phrase that is relevant to your business and is easy to remember. Prepaid toll free numbers are cheap to obtain and only charge a few cents per minute. They are also convenient – packages include a number of services such as caller ID, call blocking, conference calling, voicemail/fax mailboxes and call notification emails. Look around for the services you want and need from your phone.
Market regulator Sebi has launched a toll free helpline for investors to provide guidance and assistance on various matters such as lodging complaints and transferring shares.
The number – 1800227575 – will be available to investors from all over India in 14 languages, the Securities and Exchange Board of India said in a notification today.
The service can be used for seeking guidance on issues ranging from status of companies and matters pertaining to other regulators that are not under Sebi’s purview, to lodging complaints and getting information on opening demat and client accounts.
Investors can also seek assistance on different procedures like transfer and transmission of shares and initial public offerings (IPOs). Initially, the service will be available in English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil, Bengali, Malayalam, Telugu, Urdu, Oriya and Punjabi.
