The National Mobile Number Portability service facilitates customers to carry their existing mobile number from one telecom circle to another across India and choose the operator of their choice. NMNP is applicable to all pre-paid and post-paid customers.

Steps for Port-In

  1. Visit any Vodafone Store/outlet
  2. Generate a 8 digit UPC code by sending a sms ‘Port <your mobile no>’ to 1900
  3. Fill up the CAF and porting-in form and submit relevant documents
  4. Choose your tariff plan

Customers looking for the convenience of retaining their existing number at the new location can avail the benefits of National MNP service.

Vodafone India has a pan India base of over 184 million customers serviced through a network of over 130,000 sites, of which over 35,000 are 3G sites. This makes Vodafone India, the 5th largest network in the world. Vodafone also has the largest retail footprint with over 9800 exclusive retail stores across India.

Commenting about the initiative, Vivek Mathur, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone India said, “Customers will be the biggest gainers of the National MNP service as it allows them to carry their existing number across India and also choose the operator of their choice. Vodafone has benefited from the intra-circle MNP that was rolled out in 2011 and we look forward to a similar response this time.”
