TRAI has announced that the new fee of Rs 5.74 for mobile number portability will be effective from September 30, 2019. The telecom regular adds that the new cost was computed on the basis of cost reimbursement following the change in architecture.

Currently, the recipient telecom operators have to pay Rs 19 for every consumer acquired, to MNP service providers such as Syniverse Technologies and MNP Interconnection Telecom Solutions.

Airtel app has an option where u can port to their pre-paid plan directly and the guy will come to your home to collect documents. Hopefully will be smooth coz both Voda numbers are postpaid. I am just waiting for shifting to the permanent home. This is the first thing I am going to do.

Vodafone offered to convert my Postpaid to prepaid and were ready to give me Rs 200 discount on my postpaid bill when I ported over to Airtel.

Also, they lied that Airtel can't offer me Prepaid since I was a postpaid customer so they asked me to text "STOP MNP" to a number they gave. I told them that I would be okay with Airtel postpaid. Just release me.

And Vodafone's reply was: Aapko airtel me jaake pareshaan hona hai? lol
I said yes.

And that was that.
