Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) here today released recommendations on ‘Full Mobile Number Portability (Pan-India Number Portability)’ in the country.
The salient features of the recommendations are following:
a) After the Full Mobile Number Portability (inter-service area portability) is implemented the Recipient Operator will forward the porting request to the MNPSP of the zone to which original number range holder (the Telecom Service Provider to which the number originally belonged before its first porting) belongs.
b) Telecom Service Providers will be given 6 months time for implementation of Full Mobile Number Portability.
c) Some modifications have been suggested to the MNP service licence, to facilitate inter-service area porting (Full MNP)
d) Testing Fee for testing the various scenarios in Full MNP may be reduced to 25% of the current prescribed Fee for TSPs and MNPSPs.
