It is time to cut down your sms rate for 15 days. The ministry of Home Affairs has banned bulk SMSes and MMSes for 15 days starting from 16th August, which has led to exodus of North Eastern people from certain parts of country.
 Union Home Secretary, Mr. R.K. Singh, said ”from today onwards, No one will be able to send more than 5 SMS  in one go and MMSes of more than 20 KB data through their mobile phones (CDMA/GSM) during the ban period.”
 India’s Home Ministry has asked Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to implement the SMS/MMS Ban order through the Mobile Service providers (GSM/CDMA) across the country.
The ban announced by Home Ministry just after Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh said that spread of rumors by miscreants had led to people belonging to the North East to flee from Hydrabad (Andhra Pradesh) Bangalore (Karnataka), Pune (Maharashtra) and some other parts of the country, amidst threats of retaliatory attacks over Assam violence.
