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 Bharti Airtel in Madhya Pradesh circle, Aircel in Karnataka and Assam circls and Idea cellular in Madhya Pradesh and Assam circles. The details of the newly allotted MSC codes are given below.
Name of operator Service area MSC range allotted
Bharti Airtel Madhya Pradesh 91090-91099

The above allocation also includes MSC codes which were previously allotted to other licencees and are hereby withdrawn with immediate effect as the said licences had been quashed by the Supreme court in 2012.
