Keep in mind: Possible reasons why your port-In request could be rejected

  • If there is any billed outstanding amount more than Rs. 10 at the time the porting request is processed.

  • If the porting request applied is for across circles.
  • The port-out request has been made less than 90 days from activation
  • The UPC mentioned in the porting request does not match the one allocated to you
  • There is a pending request for transfer of ownership on the number
  • The number is prohibited from porting by a court of law or is under judicial enquiry

Make sure your overdue bills are all paid up


Postpaid customers cannot port in/out if they have overdue bills.


Existing credit available will expire upon successful porting and will not be carried forward.

Note: Call charges, plans and VAS offered by Vodafone may differ from those offered by your earlier service provider.

Check if you’re eligible to port

You are eligible to make a porting request if you have:

  • An active connection that is at least 90 days old
    (as counted from the date of new activation or the last port date)
  • No outstanding payments to the donor operator (operator that you are leaving)
  • No requests pending for change of ownership of the number
  • Your request for porting is within the same circle.
