The rest of the countdown is done according to the SMS preference received for each song. To send in the entries in this inter-active show Sadda Top 10, viewers have to use the SMS no. 303 of Punjab Spice.

The one hour show will air every Thursday at 7.10 pm. Besides pronouncing the winning songs there are plenty of prize up for grabs for the viewers who are participating in the song selection. The show has been produced in association with Positive Comsol Delhi and winners are announced through their mobile numbers.

The release states that already 12 winners have won free stays at Amritsar, Behror and other towns. Prizes also include free airtime from the mobile service provider Spice Punjab.
