As per the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), customers will not be able to submit requests for mobile number portability (MNP) from November 4-10, 2019. This marks the switch-over period to the new and simpler port-out regime, which comes into effect beginning November 11, 2019.

Under the new revamped regime, porting request within a particular service area will be completed in two working days. Whereas the requests for port out between circles will take five working days, cutting the migration process from current seven days.

TRAI has also laid out the modalities for the switch over to the new regime.
