TRAI issues new guidelines on nationwide MNP

TRAI asks Loop Mobile users to use MNP before 29, November

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has rolled out the draft of regulations related to full mobile number portability. The nationwide MNP is scheduled to begin from 3 May, 2015. This will enable the mobile phone subscribers to change their service provider in any part of the country without changing their phone number.

As per a report from PTI, TRAI said in a statement, “In view of implementation of full MNP some changes will be required in the MNP Regulations 2009 (as amended). Accordingly, draft amendment to the Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Regulation, 2009, has been prepared.”

Currently, the MNP service permits the consumers to change their telecom operator within their telecom circle. Last year in November DoT, issued amendment on MNP Licence Agreement and asked telcos to implement full MNP within a period of six months from the date of amendment to the licences.

The regulator also wants to incorporate a clause in the new amendment in order to safeguard interest of the postpaid subscribers, who face disconnection in new network even after clearing all their dues of their old service provider. Along with this, TRAI has also fixed the timeline on both the old or donor service provider and new or recipient service provider for clear communication.
