Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 33% To 8.5M in April 2011

According to the Indian telecom regulator TRAI, nearly 8.54 million  subscribers were issued porting requests in the month of April 2011, an increase of 32.98% month on month. In March 2011, 6.42 million subscribers had submitted requests for changing their telecom service provider, but there have been concerns around porting requests being granted. Last month, the TRAI had directed telecom operators not to reject porting requests due to inconsequential outstanding amounts of less than Rs 10, or on grounds of contractual obligations, apart from a bundled handset with contract, with an exit clause and the subscriber not complying to the clause.

The TRAI has not released operator-wise MNP data, but we do have statewise information:

– Zone 1 saw 4,816,752 porting requests which is 29.34 % more than Zone 2 which encountered 3,724,012.
– Gujarat saw 8,33,672 porting requests which is the maximum for both Zone 1 and Zone 2, an increase of 35.05% from March,2011 .
