Telcordia to implement MNP in India

In a move that will fast track the implementation of mobile number portability (MNP) in India, the Home Ministry has cleared the proposal for US-based Telcordia Technologies to implement the system in the country. This will provide the final approval from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board and the go-ahead for the introduction of MNP. The MNP system allows mobile subscribers to switch to a different service provider while retaining their phone numbers.
