There were just 3,267 requests from the North East circle. Note that TRAI has not provided any operator wise breakdown for these number porting requests.

Its also worth noting that there is some discrepancy in the Zone II total porting requests. While TRAI pegs the total at 47.19 million (47,185,877), if we calculate the total sum, it comes to around 47.29 million (47,285,877) requests.
