The Govt of India has revised SMS Bans, and Department of Telecommunications (DoT) sends new revised directives to all mobile service providers over SMS Ban limit. According to the notification, the service providers had been asked to increase the limit from the 5 SMS to 20 SMS per day per SIM, with immediate effect.

 The recent ongoing ban on bulk SMSes nationwide was an effort by the Government of India to prevent threatening SMS/MMS, which were being sent to North Eastern students in Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune and other cities.In consequence,it was creating a exodus of the northeast people from certain cities. As a preventive step, Govt of India banned bulk SMSes and MMSes for a period of 15 days,starting Aug 17

 According to GSM operators association – COAI, “Restriction on SMS to five per day is not only causing problems for millions of mobile phone users but may also lead to loss of 7-8 per cent revenue of telecom operators for the month.”
