Voting through short message service for the Sundarbans to have its niche among the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’ has begun.
For voting, one needs to go to the message options of their cell phones and type SB and then send it to 16333.
The Sundarbans has already been in the first position of the New Seven Wonders of the World contest and it will have this position consolidated if people vote through SMS enthusiastically.
The junior minister said currently there were at least 50 million active mobile SIM cards in the country and if 20 SMS were sent through each SIM card, the Sundarbans would get one billion SMS votes to its credit.
‘These one billion votes will obviously take the Sundarbans much ahead,’ he added.
Acknowledging every SMS vote, the New 7 Wonders Foundation will thank the voter through a return message.
