upi activation could have been included. best would have been to allow sms on paid basis as long as balance is there. but then jio probably does not care about that so trai doesn't as well.

“The Authority, hereby directs all access service providers to enable, with immediate effect, for all mobile subscribers, both prepaid and postpaid, requesting for a unique porting code, the facility to send SMS on short code 1900,” the regulator has said in a two page order on Tuesday.

I do wonder how it works out though. Would Airtel and Vodafone allow SMS to just this number? Also, how does this work on unlimited plans? Included in free SMS quota? Logically, this should be treated equally to emergency numbers. Should work without balance as long as the SIM is active.

^^^ If SIM is inactive for several months, initially outgoing call/sms stop, and after days incoming also stops. Might be that case.

USSD and Port SMS should be different I believe.
In USSD we get interactive menu after we dial certain number like *121# from phone dialer.
For porting we send sms, and operator responds back with sms for porting code.

According to sources TDSAT may move Delhi High Court against TDSAT’s order.
