Mobile Number Portability in India by Oct 31 ?

According to ET , we might finally get Mobile Number Portability in India by Oct 31 according to a statement by the TRAI chairman

“There will be no further delay in the implementation of MNP,” said The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) chairman JS Sarma.

For those who wondering what MNP is , it a service that will allow you to retain your mobile number while switching to another operator.

We would advise you to take this news with a pinch of salt as MNP has been delayed so many times already . And with operators expected to launch 3G service in India by September, we are skeptical about the MNP rollout . Are you still hoping to get MNP by this year ?

    We have been hearing this for a long time. MNP was supposed to be implemented on Jan 1, 2010 which was extended to March and now October. I wouldn’t be surprised if its postponed again
