BSNL earmarks Rs1,250 cr for MNP



BSNL is required to make an initial capital expenditure (CAPEX) of about 1,065 cores for making its basic and mobile networks MNP compliant, in addition to annual OPEX of about Rs 185 crore for the purpose of MNP service, said a senior company official.

BSNL has also asked TRAI to consider the huge expenses operators have to undertake while deciding on the porting charges.

The company has asked TRAI to make provisions to ensure parties involved in the operation—donor operators (the subscriber losing operator), fixed line operators, recipient operator and the MNP service provider (either Synverse or MNP Interconnection)—get a share of the porting charges, which are paid by customers who port their numbers.
