BSNL rationalises SMS tariff as per TRAI's Regulation

Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) has announced rationalization of its SMS Packs in order to implement the TRAI’s Regulations to sets a cap of 100 SMSs per day per users.

BSNL has withdrawn some of its SMS pack and introduced NEW SMS packs at Rs. 32, Rs. 21, Rs. 14 and Rs. 53 with revised validity and 100 SMS per day cap as per TRAI’s regulation.  Existing BSNL SMS Pack users can enjoy the offerings at present tariff/ Free SMS till the expiry of the current SMS STVs.  All new SMS Pack comes with the cap of 100 SMS/day and will be available from 27th September 2011.

All the new SMS Pack STVs are applicable to customers while in HOME LSA & while on National Roaming across India too.  The SMS STVs/SMS Packs under 2G & 3G Prepaid mobile services will not be applicable on “Blackout days” for which normal SMS charges as per plan will be applicable.


  1. i am afraid but i think u havent read the entire thing(or may be i havnt read) there is a restriction of 100sms from a sim not to a sim. u can send 100sms only n only be it to 1number or 100diffrnt numbers

  2. Yes, there is a cop of 100 sms per day from a SIM. Please read para 2 of the above post. In other words, one can send a maximum of 100 SMS per day from 1 SIM.

  3. Please read 'cap of 100 sms per day' instead of 'cop of 100 sms per day'. Error is regretted.

  4. How in the world will this ban cure anything? Pesky calls and msgs will still come and this completely overrules our right to freedom and expression! And if we have bought a sms pack they cant stop us from using it! This is completely outrageous.... They need to void this act as soon as possible!
