MNP - Mobile Number Portability for Airtel subscribers

As an Airtel subscriber, now you can change from Airtel to other mobile operator without changing your current mobile number.

If you are not an Airtel subscriber, choose your Mobile Operator for Number Porting.
If you are Corporate Mobile Subscriber, read Mobile Number Portability for Corporates.

Follow the below simple 3-Step MNP Process to switch your Airtel number to other operator, using Mobile Number Porting services.

Unique Porting Code
You need to obtain UPC (Unique Porting Code) to authenticate your ownership to other mobile operator.
Airtel-MNP PORT XXXXXXXX to 1909. (Replace X’s with your 10-digit mobile number.)
Airtel will send you the UPC by SMS in return.
MNP Application
Call executive / customer care services of your desired Mobile operator, fill CAF (Customer Application Form) and Porting Form or visit their nearest offices. (Airtel’s major offices in India) Submit the required documents as well; Photo ID, Address proof, if you are a post-paid customer submit your latest mobile bill & last paid bill receipt also. Once above process is completed, you will be given a New SIM card from your new mobile operator.
Network Change
You will receive an acknowledgement SMS from +1901 on / after 4 days for your porting request. Within 3 days from then, you will receive confirmation SMS from +1901 of your successful porting request. After 12pm midnight, mobile services from Airtel will be deactivated and you will have to use the New SIM obtained from another Mobile Operator keeping your current mobile number.

    IF I HAVE A SECURITY DEPOSIT WITH THE EXISTING SUBSCRIBER, EVEN THEN DO I NEED TO CLEAR THE DUES, WHICH SHALL BE LESSER THAN THE SECURITY DEPOSIT. IF IN CASE I NEED TO CLEAR THE DUES THEN HOW WILL I GET MY SECURITY DEPOSIT ECT BACK AGAIN.

      Hello Deepak,

      There is no other way than getting an Unique Port Code by sending SMS, with this UPC ypu will not be able to port to other networks.
      Refer to MNP Checklist.
      Try calling a Airtel executive to your place and he can help you with the process, if you are post-paid customer or planning to be.

    I sent sms STOP 0 to 1909. Airtel told me to reply with STOP 2298. On following the same, I was told, we are unable to process the request for your airtel mobile. please text the correct keyword or call 1909. whereas my words were correct.

    I have applied for porting my Airtel prepaid number to Vodafone prepaid number. For this I visited the Vodafone office, They asked me to pay Rs.225 for porting and told that out of 225 100 rs will be added to balance after porting. But I have heard the operator charges some nominal fees for porting. Is the amount of Rs 225 charged to me correct? Plz guide
