Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 22.85% To 12.98M in June 2011

According to the Indian telecom regulator TRAI, nearly 12.98 million subscribers were issued porting requests in the month of June 2011, an increase of 22.85% month on month. In May 2011, 10.57 million subscribers had submitted requests for changing their telecom service provider, but there have been concerns around porting requests being granted. 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 7,280,661 porting requests which is  27.62% more than Zone 2 which encountered 5,704,800 requests.
– Gujarat saw 1,297,951 porting requests which is the maximum for both Zone 1 and Zone 2, an increase of 23.31% from May,2011 .
– Delhi tops among the metropolitan cities with 685,009 porting requests.
– In Zone 2 Karnataka witnessed the maximum number of porting requests – 983,375 . Last month it saw 794,865 porting requests  .
– North East registered an increase of  21.71 %  from last month and saw 9,688 porting requests.
– Jammu and Kashmir encountered 2,942  porting requests, a growth of  17.87% as compared to last month figures which were 2,496.
– Orissa saw a net increase of 31.30 % in porting requests. Total porting requests for the month of May is 279,407.

Although the number of porting requests has increased in the month of June 2011, there has been a minor decline in the growth rate. May had registered a growth rate of 23.76%% in MNP requests whereas June could only see a 22.85% increase.
