The countrywide Mobile Number Portability (MNP), which will allow customers to keep their existing mobile phone numbers while shifting between states and circles, will become operational from today.

At present, users can change their operator while retaining the same number only in the same state or telecom circle.

In order to avail the new facility, the subscribers will have to visit a store of their telecom operator or call the customer care number concerned.

Earlier, the deadline to roll out full MNP was May 2 which was delayed by two months after the Cellular Operators Association of India asked for an extension from the Telecom department.
