New SMS limit per day will be 200:
The cap of 200 text messages per day per person came back into force on Monday with the Supreme Court staying the telecom appellate tribunals decision quashing the limit imposed by the telecom regulatory body.
Trai (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) had challenged the TDSATs (Telecom Disputes Settlement Appellate Tribunal) decision before the apex court on the ground that the limit was enforced to strike a balance between the senders right to freedom of speech and expression and the receivers right to privacy.
A bench of Justices G S Singhvi and Gyan Sudha Misra stayed the TDSAT order after hearing brief arguments from senior advocate Krishnan Venugopal and issued notice to Aditya Thackeray,on whose petition TDSAT had quashed the limit as violative of right to freedom of speech and expression.The bench asked Aditya,son of Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray,to file a response in six weeks.
Trai had first restricted SMSs to 100 per day as part of its tough Telecom Commercial Communications Customer Preference Regulations.However,the limit was later raised to 200.
