For those of you who are willing to port your current number to a different connection, TRAI has made life easier for us.
With the new updates from TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), MNP process has now become easier and faster. Now customers can port number to a new connection in just 3 days for same circle porting.
For this new rule, TRAI has brought several changes in the process to make it faster. All the applications will be screened carefully before sending them the unique porting code (UPC) so that there are low chances of porting rejections.
Here is the change that TRAI’s new rule brings for generation of UPC:As per the revised guidelines for MNP process, only subscribers who are eligible to port-out his number will be able to get a UPC (Unique Porting Code). In a press release, TRAI has stated certain validations that needs to be fulfilled in order to generate a UPC.
Here is what you need to ensure in order to get a UPC to port your mobile number to a different connection.
1. In case of postpaid connection, a postpaid user who is willing to port to a different connection must ensure that all the outstanding dues are paid towards existing operator (as per the billing cycle).
2. Before porting to a different connection, you should have spent a minimum of 90 days in the same network.
3. As per the exit clause in subscriber agreement, there should not be any pending contractual obligation between a subscriber and operator before porting to another operator.
4. Once a unique porting code is generated, it will be valid for 4 working days for all licensed service areas. In exception, it will be valid for 30 days in Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and North East circles.
Once you are sure that all the above conditions are fulfilled, you can start the porting process by generating a porting code. In order to get a porting code, all you need to do is send an SMS to 1900.
