If your phone has caller ID capabilities it should register when the call comes in. To prove your phone is good try it on a circuit that has verified caller ID. Have you paid for the caller ID option,if you have, the phone company may have neglected to turn it on. Thank you. Jer

If the number matches the CID number, you should get the name as well. But here is the hard part. IF your system requires you to dial an access code (say 9 to get an outside line) you may have that speed dial number saved as: 913125551212
If so, the incoming caller ID would have to match exactly, meaning CID would need to show 913125551212 in order for this to work.
BUT, caller id probably only shows 13125551212, and as such, wont work.
Try to erase your phone's voice messages. Press ERASE 2 times while the phone is not in use. Caller ID is being activated by your phone provider. To use Caller ID features, you must subscribe to a Caller ID service. Contact your service provider/telephone company for details.
the directory key is storage for caller id. dtr80 is not the type of system but the type of phone. The system needs to have other components like a mif card in order to store caller id. Also if your phone does not ring with incoming outside call than you will not get caller id.
I don't think the problem is the FSK vs. DTMF. The manual even states that the caller ID is generally received after the second ring. This is true in America. I lived in India for four months and I never ran into the problem there so... I just can't say how your provider sends the caller ID. It may be that the line is being interfered with. Do you have a DSL line attached to the same device. If so make sure that there is a filter between you phone and its connection.
I am assuming that you tested your line with the other equipment connected to the same location. You may want to reduce the problem to the simplest configuration by connecting directly to the line only no other equipment. If it works add the other equipment until the caller ID stops again. Then you know what is interfering. If you have a monitor set you could listen to the DTMF being sent make sure it is coming between the first and second ring. It is audible if it is there. If you are answering on the first ring you will not see caller ID you have to wait till after the second ring then you should see it, If BSNL is sending the same as American systems. Good luck Z
