Mobile Number Portability Process for Mobile Operators of India

MNP Telcom OperatorsMobile Number Portability allows to keep the same mobile number and change the operator.

And finally the dream of “Mobile Number Portability” (MNP) has come true, the move initiated by Department of Telecommunications (DoT) two years ago.

The deadline which missed couple of times owing to the differences between DoT and GSM Mobile Operators. Telecom Minister Mr. Kapil Sibal launched the service in Haryana on 25th Nov 2010. However for rest of India still have to wait till 20th Jan 2011 to avail the service.

Rules and Regulations regarding Mobile Number Portability:

  • Mobile subscribers has to to pay nominal fee (Rs 19/- in Haryana state) to switch between operators.
  • Post-paid subscriber has clear all dues before switching.
  • Pre-paid subscriber will loose all the remaining balance as it wont be carried forward.
  • The process will take maximum seven working days and the subscriber will be allowed to cancel his request to port within 24 hours.
  • Mobile service will be off for about 2-3 hrs during switching process.
  • Once ported, a subscriber will not be allowed to switch operators before 90 days.

Steps to follow for Mobile Number Portability (MNP):

  • Send an SMS to 1900 in following format: PORT 9822XXXXXX
    where 9822XXXXXX is your number.
  • You will get an SMS reply that contains a unique porting code from current subscriber.
  • Put request to new subscriber with this unique code which will remain valid for few days. One has to fill the application and submit all relevant documents again to new subscriber.

Number portability will be available from all the GSM Mobile operators of India which includes Vodafone, Airtel, IDEA, Aircell, Uninor, BSNL, Reliance, Videocon, and so on.

    I am the Idea user of Himachal-Network is ok but not widespread, Worst GPRS/roaming, deduct balance unnecessary and worst customer care support. If you want a trial go ahead, anyways you have the authority to change this after three months from MNP launch date.

    Hi all, recently I have changed my Mobile Operator from BSNL to Aircel, now I
    wish to share my experience of MNP, Here is the steps:

    At first go to your near Aircel Store, then ask him for give a MNP form, and
    a customer engagement form.

    Then SMS “PORT Your_Mobile_No” to 1900 and wait for receiving a SMS from 1901
    by mentioning your PORT number.

    Then filled up the form with mentioning the PORT number, and your current
    mobile number. Signed the designated places, remaining parts may be left
    blank…Your store retailer will filled up those places…Now give him Rs 19/-
    and a self-attested photo and xerox of voter Id Card, then after some hour in my
    case 7 hrs I have received a call from BSNL and they asked me the reason for
    MNP, and I told him the reason,The day was 16th March,2011,

    Now in the 21st March,2011 I have received a confirmation message from AIRCEL
    that my request is approved and my conversion will start from 21st March,2011 at
    10PM. But I did not find any changes in my mobile at 10PM or afterwards upto
    midnight, operator was also BSNL and call is also continuing..I have switched
    off phone almost at midnight, and ,

    Then next day I swithced on and found no operator seen in my mobile
    phone…And if I called to my number then just hearing “The incoming call
    facility is not yet available related to this number”…and I call Aircel
    customer care from a different number and they said that my conversion will be
    done completely in the 23rd March,2011, and ,

    Then I went to the Aircel store at 24th March,2011 and I received a new SIM
    with same number but operator is changed to Aircel, then I did the FRC(First
    Recharge) at RS 101/- and my number is activated. Now I have tested and noticed
    it is successfully changed to Aircel, and almost from every number, landline etc
    Anyone can access my mobile Number. But remember two things :

    1. The balance and validity of previous operator will not be forwarded.
    2. No calls or messages you accept during the MNP conversion date mentioned in

    the confirmation message sent from your next operator.

  41. Ranu Roy says:

    I is very sad to say that inspite of given A UNIQUE CODE NUMBER – ISAE-774412 EXP.DATE 05.04.11, I have not received any further confirmation from Air-tel Customer Care and when ever I send messege they returne messege ” You have entered an incorrect code. SMS PORT to 1900 and inititate a new port in request”
    I want to request you please do somethin about this portablity from Air-tel to Idea because I have lossed so many amount for their un-necessary charges. Because I am House job woman aged 56 years and my husband is earning not more money in this costly market.
    Thanks & Regards,
    Roy
