25.83M Number Portability Requests In India In November 2011

For those who said that Mobile Number Portability hadn’t quite taken off in India, this is news – the Indian telecom regulator has informed that( according to data provided by service providers) crossed the 25 million mark in November 2011: as many as 25.83 million subscribers submitted number porting requests during that month, as compared to 23.16 million porting requests in October 2011, an increase of 11.53% month on month.

It’s only around 4% of the total active connection base of 635.42 million, but it still is a substantive number when you also look at it in the context of churn, which also hovers around the 6-8% mark per quarter, sometimes more. Vodafone, for example, reported a churn of 46.7% on sequential-four-quarter basis.

The maximum number of requests in Zone-I(North and West India), have been received in Gujarat at 24.85 lakh where MNP was introduced in January 2011. Haryana, where the service was made available in November 2010, received a total of 12.43 lakh porting requests. Jammu & Kashmir registered the lowest number of requests at 4503.

In Zone-II(South and East India), Karnataka leads, with 22.91 lakh customers requesting for number porting, followed by Andhra Pradesh, which received 22.70 lakh requests. There were just 16076 requests from the North East circle. Note that TRAI has not provided the operator wise information.
