Modem Reboot Error: Failed to Obtain Write lock on IM

Today morning my BSNL modem showed a new error message after rebooting. The error message is Web Server: Failed to obtain a write lock on IM with the time in seconds. All I did was some changes in the wireless settings of the modem. After changing the settings I rebooted the modem as prescribed by the modem user manual. However, I reached the error/warning page instead of the configuration page. The error message is provided below.
