Mobile Number Portability from BSNL

July 9, 2014  •  177 comments

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.

      Hello Amrita,

      If you are failing to reach customer care executive from BSNL number, try calling from other phones.
      From which state you are?

    Reuested to port from docomo to bsnl (both prepaid) on 14 jun 13.. after unique number nothing happened. docomo says bsnl has to send “cancel request”. bsnl guys says “everything done already”. but docomo sim still works. But, one thing, docomo gave freee data usage of 1.5 gb valid upto 15 Aug 13 without my consent. Gave complaint to docomo, but they says, “will be done” but this cycle has happened twice in last 1 month.. What may be the reason. ?

    This is normal cheating process. I also had the same problem. TRAI informs that we can easily change our service provider, through MNP. But it seldom works. Your present service provider do not want to loose a customer, that was why they had given you some additional, value added service.

      Hello Sunil,

      Porting is possible from BSNL to other networks, BSML may reject your porting request on fancy number base.
      Still you can go through.

      Hello Pieush,

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
