The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has today issued Draft “The Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge (Amendment) Regulations, 2017”.

TRAI notified “The Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge Regulations, 2009 (9 of 2009)” on 20th November, 2009. As per the principal regulation, TRAI has fixed Rs. 19/- as 'Per Port Transaction Charge' and through notification of the Telecommunication Tariff Order (Forty-Ninth Amendment) Order, 2009 dated 20th November 2009, the Authority prescribed the Per Port Transaction charge Rs. 19/- as ceiling. As per Regulation 6(2) of the Telecommunications Mobile Number Portability per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge Regulations 2009, the Authority may review and modify the Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge. Considering the upsurge in the volume of porting requests w.e.f. 3rd July, 2015 (when pan India Mobile Number Portability was permitted) and the financial results of both the Mobile Number Portability Service Providers (MNPSPs) for the last two available years, the Authority is of the view that the present ceiling of Rs. 19/- is quite high as compared to cost and volumes of transaction involved. The Authority has, therefore, decided that the upper ceiling for per port transaction charge may be reduced as the costs of operations of MNPSPs have substantially gone down.

Hence, Draft “The Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge (Amendment) Regulations, 2017” for consultation is available here. Written comments on the issues raised in the consultation are invited from the stakeholders by 29th December, 2017.

No one telecom service provider following the MNP charges. they charge Rs.100 to take a port in request. when i urged one retailer or sell point, they replied that it is rs. 100. whats the reality.

Sir...Can GOI install or invite private companies to install de-salination plant near coastal line of Maharashtra so that water crises of every year can be eliminated once an for all. Now a days these plants can work on solar power too.

Modiji...Please check if you could control those doctor who mislead the newly become mother and father by suggesting or forcing the cesarean though normal delivery is possible. These doctors are looting the poor with huge amounts. Now a days we can see this in movies too but still nobody has taken any action. So I think you have to do something for this-Dattatray Kedar

1.सभी प्रीपेड मोबाइल सेवा प्रदाता कंपनी की:- मोबाइल नंबर पोर्टेबिलिटी शुल्क बराबर होनी चाहिए। लगभग 50 रुपये।
2. * लेकिन वर्तमान में मोबाइल नंबर पोर्टेबिलिटी पर अत्यधिक फीस(₹100) वसूली जाती हैं।

Since everything one use these days is linked with aadhar, it would be nice to develope a 'portability APP', such that one can pay online whenever they want to port.
Norms and conditions can be developed based on existing portability trends. The data available with sercice providers can be used for that.
A minimum payment can be kept inorder to check uncontrolled porting activity. Poeple are more concerned when anything is linked with their bank account.

The portability charges, if levied, should be used to fund emergency help line, otherwise should be free if they are not within a contract period.
