29.35 Lakh subscribers submitted number porting requests in the month of December, 2012, according to the Indian Telecom regulator, TRAI.  This is up from 19.86 lakh porting requests till November 2012, a increase of 47.78% month on month. However, this also means that a tiny fraction – just 2.94 million connections – out of India’s out of a total connection base of 864.72 million connections (701.63 million active), sent port out requests during the month.

The maximum number of requests in Zone-I(North and West India) were received in UP ( East)  at 3 lakh. Jammu & Kashmir registered the lowest number of requests at 1292 but that is expected, since it has one of the lowest user base.

In Zone-II(South and East India), Karnataka leads, with 2 lakh customers requesting for number porting till date, followed by West Bengal, which received 2 lakh requests. There were just 5004 requests from the North East circle. Note that TRAI has not provided operator wise information.
