TRAI Charges Operators for Breaching MNP Rules

Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) declares on Wednesday that it will charge financial deterrents on operators for breaking the regulations of mobile number portability (MNP) ranging from Rs 5000 to Rs 10,000.

"In order to make sure fulfillment of MNP regulations by access providers, the authority has decided to modify the regulations to include the requirements for levying financial deterrents where breaking is established in rejection of porting requests and also in the timelines particular in the regulations," the TRAI said in its fourth revision to the Telecommunications Mobile Number Portability Regulations 2009.

As per the TRAI while about 60 million customers have decided on for MNP so far across the country, the authority has also got a number of complaints in which the subscribers have reported that their porting requests have been rejected by contributor operators on perky grounds.

To go for MNP, a customer needs to pay a maximum of Rs 19 to the new operator for 'porting' the number and stay with the new operator for at least three months.

The client has to send an SMS from the presented phone to 1900. A unique porting code is sent by the presented provider. A request then has to be filed with the new service provider revealing the code for moving the connection.
