    TRAI slashes mobile number portability charges

    As per "The Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Per Port Transaction Charge and Dipping Charge (Amendment) Regulations, 2018, " Notifying the regulation to this effect, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) said it has "decided that the per port transaction charge may be reduced as the costs of operations of Mobile Number Portability Service Providers (MNPSPs) have substantially gone down and the volume of MNP traffic has increased".

    The authority has been of the view 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 ceiling of Rs 19 is "quite high" as compared to cost and volumes of transaction involved.
