After an ironic over spam of SMS messages on Minister of Communications Kapil Sibals personal number. A limit of 100 low cost SMS per day is being implemented for Marketing companies and mobile networks.

For every SMS beyond the limit of 100 SMSes, a charge of minimum 50 paise will be applicable, TRAI said yesterday. Subscribers have been facing the menace of receiving unsolicited promotional SMSes from unregistered tele-marketers, who often take the advantage of concessional SMS offers by telecom operators.

Last week, telecom minister Kapil Sibal had admitted that he too was a victim of such unsolicited communications. “Every two minutes I get such SMS,” he had said. TRAI is taking up the issue of pesky calls and SMSes, he had added.
