Bharti Airtel on Thursday said it’s ready to launch national mobile number portability (MNP) from July 3, which will allow customers to retain their numbers across the country.
The company said with national MNP, mobile customers across the country can now easily shift between states without having to change their mobile number.
In a statement, Airtel said 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.
The users can also avail the option of transferring their balance in pre-paid or carrying forward their unbilled/billed amount in the case of postpaid while porting their number to the new city, it added.
“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,” Bharti Airtel Director (Market Operations) Ajai Puri said.
If you are wondering if there is a catch, fret not, the complete process is the same as before. There is a small one time charge and Airtel promises the number will be ported within 24 hours!
