PM to flag off Mobile Number Portability today

Bureau Report
Agence India Press

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is scheduled to flag off the nationwide roll-out of mobile number portability on Thursday a move that will allow users to switch operators without losing their phone numbers.

“I think its a great step forward for the consumer, as it enhances choice and brings in more competition, ,” Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal Wednesday has said.

Pertinently, MNP services were first launched in Haryana in November last year.

How to do it:

Mobile Number Portability:

In this service the mobile user can switch to other service provider without changing the mobile numbers. Both prepaid and postpaid tele-users have the facility to switch to other favourable tele-operators.

How to switch:

The subscriber, who likes to avail this service, need to send a SMS from his mobile to 1900. Once the customer sends SMS, he will be receiving a unique porting code from the current service provider. Then he need to fill the application in a particular format and mention the new service provider, the customer would like to subscribe for.

How expensive:

As a transformation charge for the new operator the subscriber has to pay the amount of Rs 19.

How long will it take:

The new service provider will collect the information about the user from the current operator. A time period of seven days will be taken for the complete transfer of mobile number to the network of the new mobile operator.

Exception: The time period of transferring the MNP in Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and North East service areas will be 15 days but not 7 days.

Restrictions and limitations:

The only restriction is that you can change your operator without changing your number only within your current service area. Suppose a subscriber, who is using a Mumbai number, can not switch to an operator in Bangalore. The subscriber can only change his/her operator within Mumbai only. {AIP}
