Thank you.TRAI Can regulate the Commercial/Business SMS but cannot Regulate the Personal Communications like Greetings,Birth day Wishes,Wishes relating to several Special Suctions.It is nothing but infringement of Fundamental Rights and also Infringement of Human Rights. Hence TRAI should review the Regulations issued. For this Purpose TRAI Can Segregate the Business Communications/Personal Communications.And can stop Business/Commercial Communications/SMS and should allow the Personal Communications even though these are Group Communications/SMS. TRAI may take IMMEDIATE decision on this issue in allowing Personal Communications to maintain Human/Personal Relations or otherwise we the Individuals are constrained to approach a suitable Platform in redressing our GRIEVANCE.
