The Department of Telecommunication on Monday allotted a fresh set code of Mobile Switching Center (MSC) codes to India’s number 2 telecom operator Bharti Airtel for Assam circle. DoT has allotted the MSC codes to meet the demand of one million subscribers in the Assam service area.

DoT has allotted Bharti Airtel 80990-80999 ACCESS-MSC Code in Assam service area. The MSC code series can be used by Bharti Airtel except for the active subscribers of Reliance Communications/Reliance Telecom and customers that may have ported out.

Reliance Communications and Reliance Telecom have suspended their wireless operations with some of their numbers active on other networks through MNP which have been excluded from the series allotted to the operators with the current active numbers which go inactive in the future also returning to the operator which has been allotted the respective MSC series.

DoT has in the recent past allotted many MSC codes which were earlier allotted to Reliance Communications which have now been handed over to Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel.

    • It could have something to do with the Vodafone and Idea brand integration. Most probably Vodafone is converted to vi and the existing idea subscribers are migrated to the new vi and thus that is being counted as the point of number activation on the network. You can wait for 90 days from 7th September which will be somewhere around 6th December and try generating the UPC then. Alternatively you can try contacting vi customer care but they will not want you to port out so will just ask you about your complaints with the network. Your final resort if you want an expediated porting is to complain on PG-Portal.

    • but i wanto migrate vi postpaid red plan..this dumb guys not allow me 2 purchse red postpd…bcse i m idea mumbai prepaid custmr …

    • That should not be the case but you should consider complaining on PG Portal for sure.
