Just posting an independent thread because I think it's important.TrueCaller lets you apply here for removal:

Unlist | Truecaller

I am not sure why anyone would WANT to be listed. Though yes, they are saving themselves money by not asking for any kind of verification. I removed numbers of some of my friends as well. Asshole thing is that you cannot search for your own (or any) number without creating an account first.

This software app is very dangerous. People had reacted at very beginning of the app launch.
It does not ask the actual user any confirmation that his number is available worldwide.
It does not ask actual user for removal form the directory.
Hence actual user is completely blind on what details of his are available free to any one in the world.

Even if you would have/had removed and de-listed your number, if that database is stolen, your details are also hacked.
Only difference is that it was not available to world, but it is available to hackers.

Thats probably because someone who has your number installed the app after you removed yourself from trucaller thereby they re added you ...
I agree that privacy may be at risk here but I find this app very useful ..Now whenever I get calls from tele marketers I never answer them and put them on my ignore list ..
