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.

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.
