The union government was asked today by the Delhi High Court to explain its stand on a plea challenging a statutory regulation limiting the number of short messages ( SMs) sent through a SIM a day to a maximum of 200.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw issued notices to the Ministry of Telecommunication and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) seeking their replies to the plea seeking the quashing of the curbs on sending more than 200 SMSs per SIM in a day.

Seeking their replies within two weeks, the bench adjourned the matter for next hearing on January 18.

The bench was hearing a petition by Telecom Watchdog secretary Anil Kumar challenging the rule as “arbitrary”.
