Pay Rs 19 for mobile number portability

Last updated on: November 20, 2009 19:22 IST

Telecom regulator TRAI on Friday said mobile operators can charge not more than Rs 19 from customers for switching to another operator under the proposed Mobile Number Portability scheme.

The per port transaction charge will be Rs 19 and the subscriber will not be charged more than that. However, operators are free to levy any amount less than or equal to this charge, TRAI said in a statement.

The government has asked operators to ready their networks for porting of numbers in metros by December 31 this year.
