PAN India MNP from 3rd May 2015
Telecom regulator TRAI is all set to introduce PAN India Mobile Number Portability from 3rd May 2015 which will allow mobile customers to port in to any network across India without number change. Presently MNP allows to port in to any network within same circle but after 3rd May mobile customers can shift to any network of any circle across India. TRAI has issued sixth amendment to Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Regulation 2009 to implement PAN India MNP. This is going to benefit people who are shifting from one state to another and now mobile number can stay with customers for their entire life no matter where they stay in India.
TRAI has also reduced the time period for ported mobile number to return to original telecom operator to which the number belongs from 90 days to 60 days. New regulation has also taken care of the possibilities of default from postpaid customers while shifting to new circle and new telecom operator. If any postpaid customer defaults the donor operator can request recipient operator to disconnect such numbers.
