TRAI directs mobile operators to adhere to MNP regulations

TRAI has directed to all Cellular mobile service providers (CMSPs) and UAS licensees to adhere to sub regulation 1 of regulation 15 of Telecommunication mobile number portability regulations,2009. As per the said regulation, all the recipient mobile operators are supposed to pay to mobile number portability service providers (MNPSP) the per port transaction charges at the rate specified by the authority from time to time within 15 days of the receipt of the bill from MNPSP.

It has been found that many of the operators have refused to pay the per port transaction charges to intermediary body MNPSP. TRAI views it as the violation of the said clause of Telecommunication mobile number portability regulation 2009. Thus, through a written communication TRAI has advised all mobile service providers to adhere to the regulation and transfer the money to MNP intermediary body- MNPSP. TRAI had asked all telecos to send compliance reports in this regards by 5th May,2011. currently per port MNP charges are Rs.19 which has been computed by dividing the total cost to the MNPSPs by estimated number of porting subscribers over a period of 5 years.
