In the month of September 2015, JK received 1,417 such requests, lowest in northern region.
Porting requests were submitted for 4.16 million connections in the month of September 2015 across India.
“This is down 3.26% from 4.30 million porting requests reported in August 2015,” TRAI said. “India had a total mobile connection base of 996.65 million connections (893 million active) as of September 2015.”
TRAI does not provide any operator-wise breakdown for these number porting requests.
