Books via SMS, sounds bit wired, isn’t it? Yes, even I was completely surprised, but Reliance have geared itself to start delivering books and novels via SMS to its subscribers at a very cheap rate which will be delivered to the subscribers over a month’s time with a series of SMSs.
Such a VAS is one of its kind initiative by Reliance and the top management of Reliance are very optimist about this service which will be available for its customers latest by August. The subscription charges will be approximately Rs. 30 for each book or novel that will be delivered to its customers via SMS over a couple of weeks time!
Here is what Krishna Durbha, head (VAS), Reliance Communications has to say:
Subscribers will receive the entire novel over a series of SMSes spaced over a period of 30 days. Every day, the subscriber will get to read the novel through three SMSes
