DoT extended deadline of full implementation of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) till 3 July 2015

May 2, 2015 11:00 IST

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) on 1 May 2015 extended the date of implementation of the full Mobile Number Portability (MNP) by two months, that is, till 3 July 2015.

Earlier, on 3 November 2014, the DoT on the basis of recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) ordered Indian telecom companies to implement full MNP by 3 May 2015.

The DoT extended the deadline on the basis of a request made by the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) as telecom operators have to make some technical changes to their networks due to changes in National Numbering Plan (NNP) which would take about eight weeks.

The full MNP will allow telecom subscribers to retain their mobile number in any part of the country even when they change their operator or telecom circle. At present, partial MNP allows subscribers to retain their number while changing mobile network only within a telecom circle.
