How Can I Port My Number To BSNL

  1. At first, obtain Unique Porting Code (UPC) by sending an SMS to 1900 in the format ‘Port Space 10 digit mobile number”. Any customer of any state can follow the same (even BSNL customer also from one state to other).
    • Ex: – PORT XXXXXXXXXX by sending an SMS to 1900. In the case of Jammu Kashmir pre-paid mobile subscriber to get UPC – call 1900 instead of sending SMS.
  2. After sending SMS, immediately your operator will send a UPC to your mobile number with an expiry date. The MNP code allotted to a subscriber shall be valid for fifteen days from the time of the request. After that, it expires automatically.
  3. Immediately after getting the MNP code, you have to visit the BSNL CSC (Customer Service Center) or authorized franchisee/ retailer for porting of your mobile number.
  4. Submit BSNL mobile number portability application available as regular CAF (Customer Application Form) at every point of sale.
  5. After submission of the BSNL MNP application form along with Proof of Address(POA) and Proof of identity(POI).
  6. The customer has to pay separate porting fees for processing (Presently BSNL didn’t charge any fees for porting into BSNL. Port-in charges completely waived off, only actual SIM price levied).
  7. A new empty BSNL SIM card will issue to the customer for activation of the MNP number.
  8. Then BSNL entered all your profile into their database and made a Tele-verification call on your contact number to confirm BSNL Mobile Number Portability (MNP).
