Bulk SMS, MMS Banned In India For 15 Days

Saturday, August 18, 2012: Indian government has been trying hard to put a tab on SMS spamming and this has created a problem with people of different segments. MNC had stopped sending SMS alerts for transport cabs among many others and even high SMS users had to quit their habit. But now according to new norms set by India’s Home Ministry, “No one will be able to send more than 5 SMS in one go and MMSes of more than 20 KB data through their mobile phones (CDMA/GSM) during the ban period.”
The government has banned all Bulk SMS and MMS services for 15 days across the country to curb spread of rumours which has led to exodus of North Eastern people from certain parts of country. It has asked Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to implement the SMS/MMS Ban order through the Mobile Service providers (GSM/CDMA) in all circles across India with immediate effect.

This comes to effect after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announced that SMSes has caused the spread of rumours by miscreants to people belonging to the North East to flee from Hydrabad (Andhra Pradesh) Bengaluru (Karnataka), Pune (Maharashtra) and some other parts of the country due to threats of retaliatory attacks over the recent Assam violence.
