Help TRAI recommendspan-India MNP beimplementedwithin six months
Telecom regulator TRAI Wednesday
recommended that MNP be fully
implemented across the country
within six months to allow
subscribers to retain their numbers
even when they shift from one service
area to another.

Presently, Mobile Number Portability
is available only within the
subscribers' service area.

When MNP is implemented fully,
subscribers in Andhra Pradesh, for
example, will be able to port their
numbers to Karnataka, Maharashtra,
Haryana and so on.

Earlier this year, TRAI sought
comments from stakeholders on the
method that should be adopted to
implement full MNP and the
amendments required in existing
regulations, among various other

"After an examination of various
issues, TRAI Wednesday released the
recommendations on full MNP," said a
statement from the Authority.

Telecom service providers will be
given six month for the
implementation of full MNP, it said.
The facility of pan-India portability
will allow a mobile subscriber to
change his licence service area (LSA)
without having to change the number.

TRAI said: "Implementation of full
MNP would therefore mean
acceptance of a porting request by the
recipient operator from a mobile
number belonging to any of the LSAs of
the country, irrespective of the fact
that the LSA from where the
subscriber is porting his mobile
number and the LSA to which he wants
to port his number belong to the same
or different MNP zones."
