Exclusive : MTNL Extends Validity Period of SMS Packs Due to SMS Ban

Finally here is a great news for MTNL Mobile customers in Mumbai, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) today announced the extension of Validity for its SMS Packs, subscribed by its prepaid customers during the SMS Ban or 5 SMS Per Day regulation period.

MTNL customers who has subscribed monthly SMS Pack of Rs.30 and Rs.97 during the SMS Ban Period can enjoy their free SMSes bundled with respective SMS Packs for extra 15 Days like their SMS Packs will be valid up to 15 days after the 31st August, 2012 the last date of SMS Ban. Apart from the SMS Pack of Rs.30 and Rs.97, MTNL suspended its Daily SMS Pack of Rs.5 till the 31st August, 2012.

This moves full-fill its tag-line – MTNL hai to Sahi hai and make MTNL the first operator to publicly offer Free validity extension due to SMS ban.The SMS ban was imposed by Govt of India on August 17th,  to curb spread of rumours which has led to exodus of North Eastern people from certain parts of country, had already created many confusion among SMS users who opted for SMS pack if they will get the refund or not but this move from MTNL is a big relief for its subscribers.

We hope other operators will also follow the same in the coming days .

    To pratik :

    Try calling to CC through 198. If they cheat you in one way, you cheat in 198 way !!!.

    Great action. MTNL cares customer happiness even in the exploiting scenario. Its need to be adapted by others too.Thaks to MTNL for being with our side.

    excellent move and I hope private telco’s follow it.

    yesterday,Bloody DOCOMO charged me 5 rs per sms and when I called up to ask,I was greeted with classic docomo style,

    your details are not updated in system.call us after three hrs.

    I am also shocked to see that docomo started charging for calls to customer care.

    they were proudly advertising that they dont charge for calls for customer care.

    Sudhakar :

    What about the subscribers who have enabled the SMS pack before the 15 days ban but the validity falls in the 15 days ban period?.

    In that case, same extension of Validity period SMS Packs will be applicable for them.
