In India, Mobile Number Portability was widely implemented in January 2011. Previously, I have described that 32.78 million mobile subscribers submitted requests for number portability during January of this year to TRAI, up 12.13% from the prior month. In February, the number grew to 37.11 million and Karnataka was at the top in the mobile number portability requests with 3.94 million of requests. The Indian telecom regulator “TRAI” has reportedly stated that 41.87 million mobile subscribers submitted requests for number porting during the month of March this year, up 12.84% from the prior month.

The mobile number portability requests have significantly been increased since the declaration of the Supreme court’s decision on 2G scam. It’s well known that the Court cancelled all 122 licenses after hearing the petition of 2G scam including Uninor, MTS, STel and Etisalat.  The chart is demonstrating zone wise distributions of mobile number portability requests in February and March of this year.

It’s clear from the chart that the maximum requests came from North and West India and Gujarat played significant role in this region with 3.88 million mobile number portability (MNP) requests in March of this year. MNP requests in Haryana (where MNP was first introduced in November 2010) were 1.82 million in March of this year, while J&K reported lowest number of requests (just 6 762) in the same duration of this year.

In March 2012, Karnataka once dominated in mobile number portability requests, reported 4.5 million requests, followed by Andhra Pradesh with 3.98 million requests. North East region reported maximal change (48.81% ) in the requests in the March compare to the prior month of this year, increased from 27,959 in February to 41,607 in March.

The stats clearly depicts that the mobile number portability requests are substantially increasing month-over-month. The penchant of folks are continuously augmenting towards MNP and why it should not be?
