Terming the ceiling as "arbitrary" and against the right of freedom of expression guaranteed under the Constitution, Aditya said that as President of Yuvasena, the youth wing of Shivsena, he has to send SMSes to keep in touch with his followers and public, and sought personal exemption from restriction on the number of SMSes per SIM





Final hearing on Thackeray Jr's plea on SMS ceiling on Feb 27 - Indian Express

Lol even I thought it was a good initiative. But it turns out that it was a selfish motive. No one should be exempt from the 200 SMS restriction rule.

And this idiot is looking to invest in tech firms when he clearly doesn't know anything about them... All he needs to do is file for the appropriate permits and he can send all the SMSes he wants.

Or not.

The limit *has* curbed the spam problem rather significantly (yey) and 200 a day is perfectly reasonable for any sane person.

If one needs to send more messages than that (for campaigning and so forth), they can bloody well register like the rest of us businesses have to - should not matter which family they come from.

Yes I realize this is India. Yes I realize who the Thackerays are (disclosure: probably more well than I'd normally like), but the law is the law, and in any other country they'd have to abide by it whether they liked it or not.

With the 100/day limit, I used to run out occassionallyWith 200/day, some of my friends do run out once every 2-3 days. Bypassed by the use of dual SIM phones thoughThe main thing is that this is not a technical limit, rather its an artifically imposed limit.Like say, if there is a regulation that noone can download more than 1GB/day on a broadband connection to combat piracy (just a random example)
