Ailing telecom operator, Reliance Communications (RCom) is now allowing its customers to generate Unique Porting Code (UPC) from its website. Several RCom users across the country are complaining about network issues as the telco already closed services in its licensed circles. And the Anil Ambani-led telco recently received a deadline extension until March 20, 2018, to generate UPC to the users who’re yet to get out of the network.
RCom’s website is still alive and if you want to generate a UPC, head over the website rcom.co.in, where you can see a small banner as ‘UPC Code for MNP.’
Just click that, and you’ll be taken to the next screen, where you need to input your details such as Reliance Mobile number (of which the UPC needs to be generated), SIM number (can be found at the back of the SIM card) and Alternate mobile number, where you want to receive the UPC for port out.
And the company will send an SMS with UPC for port out to the alternate number which you have entered during the process. This is a pretty straightforward process, and any user who’s yet to port out from RCom can generate the UPC.
For those who’re unaware of the matter, RCom closed its voice services in Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh – East, Uttar Pradesh – West, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu including Chennai circles and CDMA subscribers in Delhi, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Kolkata, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal circles with effect from December 29, 2017.
Firstly, Trai ordered every subscriber of RCom to port out by December 31, 2017, post which it got extended to January 31, 2018, and now, it’s been extended to March 20, 2018. The deadline might extend even further if there are a massive number of users left to port out. But for now, the deadline is March 20, 2018, and we suggest you hurry up to generate a UPC.
