The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has made changes to the rules for mobile number portability. These changes will be effective from July 1, 2024. The purpose of these changes is to prevent fraudulent activities like SIM swap by dishonest individuals. One new condition is that a unique porting code (UPC) will not be given if the request is made within seven days of a SIM swap. This will help in ensuring the security and authenticity of mobile number porting. These changes are designed to protect users from unauthorized porting of their mobile numbers.
