Porting requests were submitted for 5.95 million connections in the month of July 2019, according to the data released by the TRAI. This is up 37.4% from 4.33 million porting requests reported in June 2019. For July, the maximum number of requests in Zone-I (North and West India) were received from Maharashtra at 0.54 million, followed by Gujarat at 0.34 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 Karnataka, with 0.67 million porting requests, followed by Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh with 0.53 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. Download: TRAI Press Release
