TRAI Mulls 80 Percent Reduction of Mobile Number Portability Fee, Starts Consultation Paper

Telecom regulator TRAI Monday started the consultation process to bring down mobile number
portability charges from to Rs. 4 from Rs. 19 levied at present.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in a statement said that considering the upsurge in the volume of porting requests with effect from July 3, 2015, and the financial results of both the mobile number portability service providers (MNPSPs), 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,"
Trai said.

The watchdog in the draft amendment of the Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge Regulations has proposed that "the Per Port Transaction charge shall be rupees four".

It has sought public comments on the matter by December 29, 2017.
