These regulations are designed to significantly curb the sending of unsolicited commercial SMSes to consumers. Starting from sept 27th 2011 every SMS service provider has to adhere to the new TRAI NCPR (National Customer Preference Register (NCPR)) guidelines. Check www.nccptrai.gov.in for more details on new TRAI guidelines.

As per TRAI Guidelines, 100 SMSes can be sent in a day. But after sending the first lot i.e. 15 SMSes, it gives a policy violation error and it allows again to send SMS only after 24 hrs. Then what is the point of sending group SMSes if we cannot send to 100 persons which is the prescribed limit. In other words, way2sms limits sending group SMSes only to 15 (and not 100). Why don't you do something about it. It was okay earlier. You had allowed full 100 SMSes to be sent but now that is not happening. Shall be grateful for a feedback.
