Today I submitted application for porting from BSNL to Idea in a local shop. He charged me Rs.80 for the SIM. I think that is ridiculously high for number porting. Please let me know, if anyone porting to Idea has paid so much. If not, how much did you pay recently.When I asked him, he told was earlier it was Rs.30 and now due to some rule changes it has been increased.

Some operators don't charge you for the sim, and the ones that do charge 19, if they charge more than 19, the rest is to be credited as talktime.

@ zero7 isn't the mrp printed on the sim kit??

MRP: Nil value is printed on the Sim kit. I think I got cheated by the shop. Will call customer service and see what is it....

It was 19 when I had ported from Idea to Aircel and the same when I ported from Aircel to Vodafone. I was told it was 19, but in both cases, wasn't charged anything.
