Why is the 'Wireless emergency alerts' notification displayed?

Zerodha does not send wireless emergency alerts. Government bodies use wireless emergency alert technology, enabled by default on Android and iOS devices, to deliver critical updates to the public. This service is designed for use during emergencies, ensuring that citizens are promptly informed.

The Department of Telecommunication (DoT) uses this to warn citizens about events such as waterlogging during monsoons. The DOT sometimes sends test alerts to check the functionality of the technology.
