Pan India Mobile Operator Code section updated with 65+ new MSC codes

By September 14th, 2015 AT 6:00 AM

Every telecom operator in the world is assigned a binumeral number to identify its network. The first part of this number is known as Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the other part is known as the Mobile Network Code (MNC) and they are represented in MCC-MNC format. The MCC for the operator remains constant throughout the country while the MNC varies from circle to circle.For example if during manual network search on your mobile you see an operator with code 405-827 you would know that it is Videocon telecom in Gujarat circle.

Along with assigning the MNC codes, the Department of telecommunications also assigns a number series to each operator in different circles called the MSC code. This constitutes the first 5 digits of your mobile number. Dot keeps assigning new MSC codes to operators who manage to garner a subscriber base of over a million subscribers in a licensed service area.

It has been a long time since we last updated the Mobile operator codes section of our site and there have been 65 new MSC codes that have been allocated by DOT to operators since the last update. This also includes MSC codes which were previously allotted to operators whose licenses were quashed by the government in Feb 2012.

Below is a list of the 65 updated MSC codes. For further details click on the Mobile operator codes option in the top menu bar.

I think BSNL and Reliance did not get any MSC code.


Rightly so BSNL did not add any major customers!
Their PORT IN was way less than their PORT OUT
