SC: 200 cap on SMSes to stay, for now


New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the operation of a TDSAT order that threw out the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s circular that restricted the number of SMSes that could be sent from one phone in a day to 200.

The bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice Gyan Sudha Misra while staying the TDSAT order, also issued notice to respondent Aditya Thackeray – the grandson of late Shiv Sena supreme Bal Thackeray.

The TDSAT order quashing the regulator’s circular restricting the number of SMSes was issued on the plea by Aditya Thackeray.
