The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on November 04, 2019, has postponed the date of implementation of Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability (Seventh Amendment) Regulations, 2018. TRAI had issued Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability (Seventh Amendment) Regulations, 2018 on December 13, 2018, which was scheduled to be in force with effect from November 11, 2019. But it was observed that earlier indicated timelines cannot be adhered to due to some technical issues at the end of telecom operators and MNP service providers.

Thus, the date of implementation of Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability (Seventh Amendment) Regulations, 2018, is postponed and the exact date is yet to be notified. The porting of mobile numbers will therefore continue in accordance with the existing MNP process and will not be affected during November 04 to 10, 2019. For further clarification, Shri S.T. Abbas, Advisor (Networks, Spectrum and Licensing) may be contacted at Tel. No. +91-11-23210481, Fax No. +91-11-23232677.
