Guys UPI uses sms for authentication and I myself recharged my mobile number just to send upi SMS, most of the low value packs excluded sms packs, first they barred sms in 19 pack then in 49 pack then from 79 pack then then pack containing sms started from 149 onwards,they are doing kind of anthesia, this is a very pathetic situation, we end up paying for higher price packs unnecessarily, Now UPI looks most useless and expensive payment mode to me,

UPI authentication is only needed once naa ? If nothing interfered with i.e sim changed / mobile formatted etc etc , once authenticated… UPI can work for indefinite period say years .

So what is the fuss here ?

*sometimes on app updation it asks for again SIM verification.
*using a new upi enabled app.
*changing/adding extra bank account require sim verification in some apps.

Still we used tricks and used internet unlimited free in Airtel and I downloaded 30-40 GB data per day in those days, bsnl also gave unlimited free 3g in 274 plan, in those days my annual mobile expense never crossed Rs.500
I used reliance cdma evdo fully unlimited free with tricks userne sam1 password password

No one shelled out too much on mobile bills at that time except extra richs, poor people were able to maintain their feature phone by keeping 10-20 Rs. balance for years
Everything was available on demand no special pack was required, I enjoyed Airtel NOP service Rs.30 per week unlimited internet

Most importantly there were many cheap alternatives available at that time.Only rich people used to have air-voda-idea sim and paid ~250 for 1gb.
I personally used Aircel+Uninor combo until it was present in the market and got my call/SMS/internet requirement fulfilled under 100₹/month.

Moreover, At that time calling experience was awesome with no call drop issues at all.

Seems you haven’t used SBI YONO yet.
They have made SMS authentication mandatory for net banking and their mobile app is also stupid. Will kick you out.

In 2010 I used Tata Docomo Mh circle Rs.94 yearly pack which provided 1 GB data every month for one year , for new users frc was at Rs. 99

SMS is basic network-provided feature. Phone call and SMS are indistinguishable and can never be discriminated. Mobile data is a different thing. In the ₹250 per 1 GB data era there was no discrimination. One could send SMS from main balance, however low it was. Even if you had 2 rupees balance you would be able to send a SMS. That is how it should be.

Complete morons out there, having no brains at all can somehow tolerate this complete insanity.

The above is without factoring in the urgency/SOS part. When in urgency what are you going to use, a phone call? Or Whatsapp?

TRAI’s new name is RELIANCE JIO, now Telecom policies are made in Jio headquarters and puppet TRAI only implements them blindly
