MNP was first implemented on November 25, 2010, and since then, a total of 939.55 million MNP requests have been made. In the coming months, it will touch the billion requests figure.

Zone-1 includes the Northern and Western India and Zone-2 includes the Southern and Eastern India. Since most of the users during the month were lost by Vodafone Idea (Vi) and BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited), it wouldn't be too harsh to assume that most of the MNP requests came from their subscribers.

Note that MNP requests don't necessarily mean that porting happens. Sometimes, the users make the request but then don't follow through with it and stay with their current operator. According to the TRAI data for the month, Jio added the most wireless users to its subscriber base (resulting in the expansion of its wireless subscriber market share) followed by Airtel. BSNL and Vi continue to lose subscribers and market share to Bharti Airtel and Jio.

Even in the active users department, only Airtel and Jio saw growth, while BSNL and Vi saw a decline in numbers.
