If you are troubled by your existing mobile company and want to change your number to any other company, it is a good news for you. Telecom Regulator Trai has made the entire process of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) easier. The telecom regulator has decided to resolve the change of number within the service area within two days.
When, from one telecom circle to another, a 4-day time has been fixed for the number change request. Apart from this, if the telecom companies incorrectly reject the port number request, then they will be penalized up to Rs 10,000.
TRAI said that the time limit for intra-licensed service numbers has been fixed to speed up completion of the connection related to porting. Time limit for one circular port request from one circle has been reduced to 4 days. Earlier, its time limit was 15 days ago.
Apart from that, the validity of the Unique Porting Code (UPSC) has also been changed. 4 days have been fixed instead of the previous 15 days. However, the validity of the Unique Porting Code (UPSC) for Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and North-East has not been changed, it will be 15 days as before. The process of withdrawing the port request via text message (SMS) has been made simpler and faster. In the case of corporator porting, the time limit for the existing 50 numbers of single orthorization letter has been increased to 100.
