The department of telecommunications allocates from time to time new set of MSC codes to operators in certain circles where the operators meet certain qualifying criteria of subscriber base.
In the past we reported how DOT had assigned new MSC codes to Airtel and Idea cellular on meeting 1 million mark in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal.
Now DOT has assigned new range of MSC codes to Videocon Telecom in Gujarat circle and revised the previously allocated MSC codes to Vodafone South in Karnataka circle.
The details of the newly allotted MSC codes is given below
|Serial Number||Name of Licensee||Service area||MSC code range|
The above allocation also includes MSC codes which were previously allotted to other licencees and are hereby withdrawn with immediate effect as the said licences had been quashed by the Supreme court in 2012.
