45.89M Mobile Number Portability Requests In India In April 2012

As many as 45.89 million subscribers submitted number porting requests during the month of April in 2012, according to the Indian Telecom regulator TRAI. This is higher than the 41.87 million porting requests in March 2012, an increase of 9.59% month on month, and easily the highest number of portability requests till date, after MNP was introduced in January 2011. It remains to be seen whether the portability requests increased in February, after the Indian Supreme Court announced its 2G scam verdict, cancelling 122 licenses, including those given to new telcos Uninor, Shyam Sistema (MTS), Etisalat DB (Swan), STel, Loop Telecom, and some given to incumbents like Idea Cellular and Tata Teleservices.

The maximum number of requests in Zone-I(North and West India) have been received in Gujarat at 42.27 lakh. Haryana, where the service was made available in November 2010, received a total of 19.56 lakh porting requests. Jammu & Kashmir registered the lowest number of requests at 7424, but that is expected, since it has among the lowest user base.

In Zone-II(South and East India), Karnataka leads, with 51.14 lakh customers requesting for number porting, followed by Andhra Pradesh, which received 44.39 lakh requests. There were just 48,904 requests from the North East circle. Note that TRAI has not provided operator wise information. Also, the TRAI press release has made an error in totaling the porting requests for Zone-II.
