TRAI’s new SMS rules upset youth

Youngsters prefer sending SMS to chats.
While young Mollywood stars such as Asif Ali and Akhila Sasidharan are not text maniacs, they 
do not support the recent regulation implemented by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) — that of restricting text messages to 100 a day.

Although there are various other means to communicate and be in touch with your pals, nothing can be as cheap and convenient as mobile text messages, says Aisten Correya, an MBA student at the Albertian Institute of Management.
TRAI had taken this decision in order to target several telemarketers who are harassing subscribers by sending innumerable text messages a day, but youngsters are at the losing end at the moment.
Engineering student Bobby Sebastian says, “Although TRAI has a point they could have only targeted telemarketers and spared the common man. Now I will have to shell out extra money to call my friends.”
Actor Akhila Sasidharan says that although most new mobile phones are equipped with an Internet facility, the new regulation is bound to affect contestants in reality shows because their major source of support is through audience SMSes.
