USSD is just the name of a service. Can be simulated over 4G too. Just the way we simulated voice using VoLTE and SMS using IMS, USSD over LTE can be facilitated using SIP protocol present in the IMS stack of the phone. So no need to even have an active data pack.

Can someone ELI5?
What exactly is USSD for mobile and payment services?
Are those like special chargable numbers for mobile banking? Or like those 1860 numbers?

Quote from the attached PDF file...
The Authority will continue to keep a watch on the progress of service and may review the charge after a period of two years
It is definitely going to be charged like earlier, when there are enough people to loot.
