BSNL Procedure for Mobile Number Portability (MNP) facility in detail

Advertisement
Mobile Number Portability (MNP) was launched across India on 20th January 2011 and implemented by all the telecom network operators which gives more and more convenience to GSM/CDMA customers
BSNL Mobile Number Portability (MNP)
Mobile Number Portability(MNP) is a facility which enables mobile users to retain their Mobile Number when changing from one mobile network operator to another operator, where the user not worried about the change of mobile number.

Detailed MNP(Mobile Number Portability) Procedure through steps
  • At first, the customer have to Obtain Unique Porting Code (UPC) by sending an SMS to 1900 in the format ‘Port Space 10 digit mobile number” (Ex:- PORT XXXXXXXXXX) by sending to 1900 in case of J&K pre-paid mobile subscriber to get UPC - call 1900 instead of sending SMS.
  • UPC allocated to a subscriber shall be valid for a period of fifteen days from the date of request or such time till the number is ported out, whichever is earlier, for all service areas except Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and North East licensed areas the validity for the UPC shall be for a period of thirty days from the date of request or till such time the number is ported out, whichever is earlier, irrespective of. number of requests the subscriber makes. 
  • After getting of MNP code you have to visit the BSNL CSC (Customer Service Center) / Authorized franchisee / retailer to request for porting of your mobile number. Fill in a CAF (Customer Application Form) with relevant plan and service(2G/3G) and pay the porting fees for processing. (Presently BSNL is not charging any fees for porting into BSNL, Port-in charges will be waived off and actual SIM price will be charged), you will be issued a new BSNL empty SIM card. 
  • Upon approval of porting request, whole Porting process will takes a maximum of 7 days for activation..
  • You are required to change your SIM card in your handset when the old operator got disconnected the number. Once ported the minimum time to stay in that network is 90 days.
  • In case of problem you need to contact the Toll free number 1800-180-1503 or 1503 .

  7. I have applied for portability from Tata Docomo to BSNL. At the time of taking new sim, i ask them to give me micro sim as i have iphone-4, but they refused to give micro sim and told me that first they will activate 2g sim and after its activation i can take 3g micro sim.

    Because of above, i paid them Rs 110 for 2G sim and on activation of sim i need 3g sim which will cost me another Rs 140/-.

    Please comment/update on this, is it like this that one need to activate 2g sim first and only than can apply for 3g sim.

  24. i want MNP from Aircel Karnataka to BSNL 3G karnataka for that do i need to submit documents again at BSNL for the same>

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you have to submit latest ID+Address proof documents to BSNL

      Delete
    2. What does 'latest ID' mean? ID documents are not usually renewed frequently. For example, Income Tax PAN Card or Voter Card are issued once. These documents are not renewed after certain period. So, if the photograph on these documents is ten/fifteen years old, it does not make the document redundant and should not be rejected out rightly on the ground that it carries old photograph. It is very clearly mentioned in FAQs section on income tax department website (http://www.incometaxindia.gov.in/pan/overview.asp)
      Question:Will the existing PAN cards issued by the Department remain valid?
      Answer:All PAN allotted and PAN card issued by the Department will remain valid. All persons who have been allotted a PAN need not apply again.
      The need to put forth my above argument arose in the backdrop of my visit to BSNL Office, Sector 70 Mohali when the lady official dealing with requests for fresh mobile connections refused to accept any of the valid ID proofs submitted by me for obtaining mobile phone connection, on the one or the other pretext. She rejected my PAN Card because it carries an old photograph; she rejected the Voter Card with the reason that the photograph it carries is not clear. She refused to accept my Pension Payment Order (PPO) issued by Public Sector (PSU) Bank which carries not only my photograph but that of my wife also alongwith my present residential address clearly mentioned in it, on the plea that this is not a valid POI/POA. I have already received Unique Porting Code which is valid upto 15th Sept., 2013. Please advise me to whom should I contact for porting my number to BSNL. I am sure the dealing Clerk is not the ultimate authority to decide the things. Thanks in anticipation of receiving a suitable & workable advice - Mohinder Singh H.No. 1333, Sector 68, Mohali (Mob. 9915949661)e-mail id : mohinder1958@sify.com

      Delete
    3. Some of the employees didn't know anything, Pension Payment Order (PPO) with address and photo is an acceptable document, so Approach next higher official, or submit that proofs(PPO+PAN) in any another BSNL CSC

    NUMBER PORTABILITY service in march 2013 from RELIANCE to BSNL. Then I

    recharge, new recharge hab been failed. Once I check my balance it
    shows 0.00INR & validity up to 16 oct 2013.

    My problem is that I am not in the BIHAR-JHARKHAND circle, so that on
    toll free no. I can not call.

    Once I called to toll free no. it connected to KERALA Circle, they told, Thin mobile no. does not belongs to BSNL.I am very confused,. Please Guide me.

    Thanks in advance.
    So, please suggest me that, what recharge I should do, to continue my service.

    1. Recharge with minimum TOP UP and check it, because ur in roaming, if main balance is not available, network may drops in Roaming

    3. it means, your new postpaid number is not provided with Roaming facility, so send one of your friends/relatives to that activation center of BSNL which is in your home circle and ask for activation of roaming facility.
      For provision of any service for postpaid connections, concerned authorities only provides you the facilities.
