BSNL MNP.  The process of porting BSNL mobile number to another Mobile operator is so simple & easy.
Just follow the below 4-steps simple process to port successfully:

  1. Know your Mobile Number Porting eligibility

    • Call the customer-care of the new Mobile operator you wish to port and understand their pre-requisites, documents required and terms & conditions. You can read these in their CAF (Customer Application Form) or ask their executive.
    • If you wish to port-out, fill the CAF & Porting Form. To fill these forms, you will need Unique Porting Code.
  2. Get UPC (Unique Porting Code)

    • Send SMS in below format to obtain UPC from BSNL:
      • PORT xxxxxxxxxx to 1900. Replace X’s with your 10-digit BSNL mobile number.
    • If you are from Jammu & Kashmir and a pre-paid subscriber, call 1900 to get the UPC.
    • BSNL will provide an auto generated 8 digits UPC; first two characters are alphabets & rest of six is numerical characters.
  3. Mobile Number Porting request

    • Submit the duly filled CAF & Porting Form to your new mobile operator. Below details are mandatory for MNP:
      • UPC (Unique Porting Code)
      • Documents required by your new Mobile Operator
      • Last bill paid receipt from BSNL, if you are a post-paid subscriber
    • Get new SIM card from your new Mobile operator.
    • Your new Mobile operator may charge Rs. 19/- as porting charges.
    • Note: You can cancel MNP request only within 24 hours from submitting the CAF & Porting Form. Read BSNL MNP FAQ’s.
  4. Activation of your ported Mobile number

    • If your porting request from BSNL is accepted, your new Mobile operator will confirm the same in 3-4 working days.
    • Your new Mobile operator will inform you the date & time of when the porting will happen, by SMS.
    • On 7th Working day, you will be ported to your new Mobile operator. If you are from Jammu & Kashmir, Assam & North East, it will be on 15th working day.
    • There will be about 2-4 hours service disruption during the porting process, mostly during night only.
    • Replace your current BSNL SIM card with new SIM card provided by your new Mobile operator.
  5. Check BSNL prepaid balance

    I have applied for my pre-paid my Mobile number(9491881881) portability from BSNL to Airtel in March 1st week and got my upc code too but transfer did not take place and 14 days got lapsed. I had repeated the same process again on 26th March and till now my BSNL line did not get disconnected. Airtel had issued a new sim card but i cannot use it untill BSNL dis-connects my service. when will it happen again it is nearing another 14th Day ( 2nd time). Looks like BSNL is purposefully delaying the number portability requests. Someone should whip up BSNL to expedite………

    Hey, I had filed an application for porting from BSNL to Vodafone at a local vendor and received a new sim from Vodafone too. But the BSNL network never got disconnected and the local vendor took back the sim and gave me my money.
    The reason he claims is: ” BSNL isn’t leaving my no, so they can’t port my phone no to Vodafone”

    Please can you guide me how to go with this ?

    My phone no is 9434363574

    Thanks in Advanace

    Sorry, one more point for my above post . When I try to lodge a complaint online with BSNL, I get a message “number not working in BSNL” although BSNL SIM card definitely working.
    This shows, I think, that the MNP request is in process but all the necessary updation has not been done

    Hello Telecomdiary,

    You are doing a great. I have also tried to port my number from Bangalore Karnataka BSNL prepaid to Docomo postpaid. I have sent my 10 digit number and PORT message to 1900, got the UPC number, and have got the new SIM from Docomo. After that there is no development.

    Docomo helpline says there is no record of my BSNL number with them, and suggest asking BSNL for the status of the MNP request.

    Could you please help me with a contact number for BSNL for this problem ? Thanks

Lodged complain with BSNL customer care, as per their suggestion again sent the port message and waited for some more days.

      First you have to change the ownership to your name, this can be done by original owner only by visiting any BSNL office along with his & your valid documents.
      Once ownership has been changed, follow the MNP Process to port to Airtel / Idea.

      Hello Vikas,

      If you are currently from Mumbai, yes you can port to Vodafone Mumbai.
      If you are from other part of Maharastra (not Mumbai), you can not port to Vodafone Mumbai, however you can confirm with Vodafone customer care.

      For other details, refer to MNP Procedure.

    • Telecom Diary on 6th Dec' 12Reply

      Hello Vikas,

      If you have paid for that fancy number,then no problem. Otherwise, BSNL may object and you have to put some struggle.
      But, as per TRAI there is no such provision to stop subscribers from porting, it is just a smartness of mobile operators.
      You can try.

  86. Ramesh on 22nd Jan' 12Reply

    I had ported my Vodafone number in last week of 2011, and followed all the procedures to get the BSNL service. After 8/10 days of porting, I got a call from BSNL for address verification and told that I ll get the BSNL service within 3 more days. But already 25 days gone after porting. Still I am unable to get the BSNL service. But vodafone SIM is still working. Now I am unable to understand, who is responsible for it; vodafone or BSNL. Can anybody help me to short out this problem???

    • Telecom Diary on 23rd Jan' 12Reply

      Hello Ramesh,

      Mobile Number Porting is a shake hand procedure, means both operators are responsible. We have Donor operator and new operator in this process.
      In your case, Vodafone is donor and he has to release the number from his server to BSNL server. Vodafone will only do this when below parametres are met :-

      1) You should be at-least 90 days old customer with donor
      2) You have paid last month bill (if postpaid)
      3) You have paid unbilled amount to the date (if postpaid), advised to pay some 10-15Rs extra
      4) You have not got any free gits or free talk-time or bill adjustments from donor in past 90 days
      5) Your mobile number is not a fancy number and you have got it free
      6) And many more… (depends on operator)

      If donor is satisfied with above all parameters, he will release the number and BSNL has to activate it.
      BSNL has nothing to do here, except get the mobile number from Donor operator and activate it on BSNL network.
      Below are the below concerns for BSNL to accept your porting request when :-

      1) The details you have given should not mismatched while verification
      2) If postpaid, you must live with family or else make some security deposit
      3) Owner of the Vodafone mobile number and Applicant in BSNL application should be same (even if its your father’s, not accepted)

      Now with above details, analyze your situation and talk to both operators customer care, sure they will help you.
