New Delhi: TRAI has instructed the telecom operators in the country to implement mobile number portability (MNP) across the country from October 31. The Department of Telecom (DoT) said the operators must ensure that all rolex datejust replica inter-operator tests for porting the numbers from one service provider to another are completed before September 1, 2010. MNP is a service that allows a mobile user to change his operator while retaining the number.

 

The Dot made it clear to all telecom operators that in case they fail to implement MNP as per the scheduled deadline, they will be barred from launching any new commercial services from September 1.

 

"There will be no further delay in the implementation of MNP," Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman J S Sarma said.

 

"It has been decided that permission to launch commercial service in any area with effect from September 1, 2010 shall be given to only those licensee(s) who are MNP compliant," said a DoT note.

 

Mobile service providers - Bharti Airtel, Reliance, Vodafone Essar, Tata Tele, Idea, STel and Aircel - are getting ready to launch high-speed 3G services from next month.

 

State-owned telcos BSNL and MTNL have said they are ready with the infrastructure to implement the MNP service.

 

The earlier June 30 deadline for the implementation of MNP was deferred as the operators were not ready with the infrastructure to provide the service.

 

The MNP was to be implemented by December 31, 2009 in all the metro cities as well as in the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The deadline was then changed to March 31, 2010 and thereafter to June 30, 2010.
