MTNL Extends Validity Period of SMS Packs Due to SMS Ban.
MTNL customers can now feel secured about their montly SMS packs. SMS Pack of Rs. 30 and Rs. 97 during the SMS Ban Period can enjoy their free SMSes bundled with respective SMS Packs for extra 15 Days like their SMS Packs will be valid up to 15 days after the 31st August, 2012 the last date of SMS Ban . Apart from the SMS Pack of Rs. 30 and Rs. 97, MTNL suspended its Daily SMS Pack of Rs. 5 till the 31st August, 2012.
MTNL is the first operator who could connect to the subscribers concern and took a well thought decision. It publicly offered free validity extension due to SMS ban. The SMS cap was declared by the government of India on August 17th to curb the spread of morphed SMS and images which led to exodus of Northeastern people from Bangalore, Pune and Lucknow. After the decision was announced subscribers were confused if their SMS pack would work after the regulation period is over.
So, this announcement came as a big relief to the Mumbai MTNL customers.We hope other service providers are listening to this…!!!
