Mobile Number Portability (MNP) is to be rolled out in India starting from December 31st. MNP is the service that allows you to to select any network without changing their numbers. Indian mobile service providers will implement this facility from December31, 2009 in metro cities(Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai & Chennai) and ‘Circle A ‘service areas and by March 2010 onwards, in other parts of the country.
MNP would increase competitivity amongst our telephony service providers since they have to take into account the risk of customers migrating to other companies.
The Maximum price in rupees for making use of MNP is INR 19. You will also need to get a written consent from your current service provider.
