Airtel and Vodafone To Start Nationwide MNP from tomorrow

Today, Airtel and Vodafone have announced that they will start nationwide MNP from tomorrow. Earlier, they had removed the process of adding 0 or +91 while dialing any STD number and now, looks like they will be the first in rolling out nationwide MNP as MNP_Airtel_Vodafone

Just two months ago, TRAI had directed all telecom operators to implement nationwide MNP, and the deadline was May 3rd. However it was shifted to July 3rd as telecom operators had to make socme changes in their hardware for rolling out the nationwide MNP. TRAI_LOGO

Airtel said with nationwide MNP, mobile customers across the country can now easily shift between states without having to change their mobile number. Also in the statement, Airtel mentioned that now its customers can enjoy special offers like processing requests for porting within Airtel’s network within 24 hours and free incoming on roaming until the portability request is processed. This is going to be a good idea, for getting more customers shifted to Airtel.Airtel and Vodafone To Start Nationwide MNP from tomorrow - 1

The users can also avail the option of transferring their balance in prepaid or carrying forward their unbilled/ billed amount in the case of postpaid while porting their number to the new city, it added. The process for full MNP is the same as intra-city mobile number portability.

Bharti Airtel Director (Market Operations) Ajay Puri said,

“With our complete readiness to launch national mobile number portability, we aim to empower customers enabling them to retain this identity as they move across anywhere in the country. To facilitate a seamless transition, we will also allow our customers to enjoy free incoming on roaming while their number portability request is being processed.”

Commenting about the initiative, Vivek Mathur, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone India said,

“Customers will be the biggest gainers of the National MNP service as it allows them to carry their existing number across India and also choose the operator of their choice. Vodafone has benefited from the intra-circle MNP that was rolled out in 2011 and we look forward to a similar response this time.”
