TRAI allows mass porting for corporate mobile numbers


The telecom regulator has amended the mobile number portability (MNP) regulations to allow mass portability for corporate accounts from Wednesday. Mobile numbers can thus be ported for corporate accounts, as long as there is a letter of authorization (LOI) from the authorized signatory of the corporate mobile numbers.

According to the TRAI, as many as 50 corporate numbers can be ported out with a single porting request, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) said in a release. The guidelines will remain in force for 90 days from now, and telecom operators will be allowed 48 hours to port users out, as opposed to 24 hours for individual porting requests.

TRAI acted after it received complaints from the subscribers of corporate mobile numbers that their porting requests have been rejected by the donor operators under the category “Contractual Obligation” for want of permission or authorization from the company or corporate for porting such numbers.
