TRAI consultation paper on revamping MNP scheme by month-end
The process of network port-out is set to become faster and simpler for mobile subscribers, as the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India is planning to initiate a review of the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) mechanism.
It will issue, by the month-end, a consultation paper that will look at reducing the time taken to switch from one network to another under MNP, and will also seek to simplify the entire process, according to TRAI Chairman RS Sharma.
“We will be bringing a consultation paper on expediting MNP. Today, the process takes time. The consultation paper will be aimed at reducing that time and changing the processes. We are currently working on it and will issue it by the month-end,” Sharma told PTI.
