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

    Hello Anantaram,

    Have you contacted BSNL customer care to know the status before applying for the second time? Or, have you contacted them recently?
    Refer to MNP Checklist to know the reasons for possible porting request decline.

    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………

    I had the same problem. But after sending sms to 1900 for 2nd or 3rd time, I was lucky to get an UPC from BSNL and was able to port my no. to Airtel. So keep on trying and good luck!

    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
    Regards.

    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

    Hello,

    I have tried to port my number from BSNL prepaid to Vodafone postpaid. I have sent my 10 digit number and PORT message to 1900, have got no reply. Waited for 3/4 days. Lodged complain with BSNL customer care, as per their suggestion again sent the port message and waited for some more days. This way, it has been ONE MONTH , several customer care complain IDs and port messages to 1900 – but I have not got the UPC yet.

    I satisfy all the MNP checklist requirements and also have got the new SIM from Vodafone. But since I am not getting the UPC, I am unable to switch to the new network.

    I am from Kolkata, West Bengal. Any help will be highly appreciated.

    I was using BSNL post paid and my number is 9490749049. I applied for MNP from BSNL to Airtel. Its been 2 weeks and it seems BSNL didnt release my number to Airtel for them to activate my sim. Please see to it that my above number is released to Airtel. Almost 3rd week now and still BSNL has not released my number. Please look into the matter.
