    I am a LOOP Mobile customer.I have submitted the required MNP forms to MTNL office at Naupada,Thane(west) on 29Th October 2014. I was told that MTNL servive will start within $ days.
    Today is 10th day and there is no change in service provider. I asked again in MTNL office today about this. They were unable to answer when it will be done.
    Can any MTNL authority tell me about this delay?
