Reliance Jio has again slammed its rival telecom operators accusing them of not allowing Mobile Number Portability (MNP), thus preventing their subscribers to switch to Jio’s network.
Jio has also urged TRAI to direct the dominant incumbent operators to comply with the licence terms and obligations and sought revocation of their licenses if they continue to deny mobile number portability.
This is not the first time though that Jio has accused other telecos of not allowing MNP. Earlier this month while announcing the launch of Jio’s services, its chief Mukesh Ambani slammed other telecos of blocking Jio subscribers’ calls and urged them to allow MNP.
MNP allows a subscriber to retain his number while switching to a different operator.
Both Jio and other telecom operators are complaining against each other for ill-practices. Recently, Vodafone, Airtel had Idea have assured to increase point of interconnections for Jio but are demanding additional revenue fearing huge volume of calls from Jio subscribers as the operator is offering free voice call facility till December 15.
