Devendra Fadnavis suggested solution to the problem by saying the rates for sending bulk SMS should be increased and fines should be imposed on person sending unwarranted SMSes.

Though TRAI has increased the limit to 200 SMS/ day on facing opposition from all quarters. Fadnavis argued that even the limit of 200 SMS/ day is not sufficient when lakhs of people need to be communicated regarding forth coming disaster.

He cited his own example to explain the severity of the situation. He told he has received 2000 SMSes on the day of Diwali and thousands more in the coming days. He was banned from sending SMS when he completed his slot of 3000 SMS. Now he needs to wait till the start of next billing cycle to reply to his remaining SMSes.
