Why cap on SMSes, Delhi high court asks Trai, government

The Delhi high court on Wednesday issued notices to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) and the central government on a petition challenging the regulator’s imposition of a cap of 200 SMSes per day per person.

A division bench of Acting Chief Justice AK Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw has given two weeks to the government and the Trai to respond to the petition filed by Anil Kumar, secretary of an NGO Telecom Watchdog, who sought quashing of the Trai’s order restricting the number of SMSes per day with effect from Sep 27, 2011.

Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the petitioner, told the court: “Such a cap violates the sanctity of democratic norms and right to freedom of speech and expression of every person in the country.”
