Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 19.73% To 15.54M in July 2011

So much for claims that Mobile Number Portability is not having an impact - the number of MNP requests appear to be increasing month on month, from 10.5 million requests two months ago to 15.54 million requests in July 2011, according to the Indian telecom regulator TRAI. Month on month, this is an increase of 19.73% from 12.98 million subscribers requesting portability in June 2011. However, 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: - Delhi tops among the metropolitan cities with 839,471 porting requests. We'll file an RTI with the TRAI for telecom operator-wise MNP requests, and should have that information in a month. Download: TRAI Press Release Related: - Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 22.85% To 12.98M in June 2011 - Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 23.75% To 10.57M in May 2011 - Mobile Number Portability Requests In India Up 33% To 8.5M in April 2011
