Mobile Number Portability requests in India decreased to 5.28M in March 2019

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India

Porting requests were submitted for 5.28 million connections in the month of March 2019, according to the data released by the Indian telecom regulator TRAI. This is slightly down 0.4% from 5.30 million porting requests reported in February 2019.

For March, the maximum number of requests in Zone-I (North and West India) were received from Maharashtra at 0.51 million, followed by Gujarat at 0.47 million, and UP-East at 0.32 million. On the flip side, the least number of requests were received from Jammu & Kashmir, which has one of the lowest user bases among all states in the country, at only 20,000 requests. Note that the TRAI does not provide an operator-wise breakdown for these mobile number porting requests.


In Zone-II (South and East India), the maximum number of requests were received from Andhra Pradesh, with 0.39 million porting requests, followed by Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh at 0.38 million and 0.37 million requests. The North East circle saw only 10,000 porting requests for the month.

Note that in November 2017, the TRAI reduced the per port transaction charge for each successful Mobile Number Portability from Rs 19 to Rs 4. The TRAI had capped the porting charge at Rs 19 in 2009, and operators were free to charge any amount less than this if they chose to.
