"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 Telecom Regulatory Authoriry of India (Trai) has said in a two page order on Tuesday.

The decision comes within days of Reliance Jio Infocomm alleging that Vodafone ldea and Bharti Airtel's new tariff plans disallow consumers below a certain pricing threshold from porting out.

TRAI again took half baked decision. SMS should be allowed on all plans. It's useful to contact during emergency and even use it to add/drop DTH channels.

Another problem here is requirement of plan. I am porting out because I am unsatisfied. Why would I recharge? Operators will discontinue smaller amount plans like ₹19 to prevent porting out. Minimum ₹99 will become new norm.

TRAI should direct all Telcos to give unlimited calls & sms for Rs.99 as basic plan in these Zero IUC.
