Please Request TRAI to facilitate me to send SMS 24 hrs. So please de-Register all my friends STOP DND to 1909

it is very sad to hear that the trai has imposed certain restrictions to the group messages. in past i use to share information with my friends, relatives and others and they also feeling very convenience in getting the proper information within the time. now it seems, the trai is trying to create communication gaps between the people. however, i request the trai to lift the conditions or at least the restrictions on dnd numbers. i hope the trai should understand the feelings of people and lift the conditions as early as possible as the service is no going to create any security problem and there is no such instance reported till today.
