There are eight mobile operators in Haryana: Airtel, Idea Cellular, BSNL, Aircel, Loop, Vodafone, Etisalat and Videocon. For now, MNP will be allowed only within circles. The customer will have to pay a maximum of Rs. 19 to the new operator to change network and the new operator has the option to waive off the fee or reduce it. But the minimum stay period with one operator for consumer is three months. Both pre-paid and post-paid consumers can use MNP.

Customers willing to exercise the option of changing their service provider without change of number will have to send an SMS from their phone to 1900.

Based on this, they will get a unique porting code as SMS from the existing service provider. The customer can then make an application in the prescribed form mentioning the code to the selected new service provider for porting of number. A period of seven days has been prescribed for completion of porting (transfer) of the mobile number to the network of the new service provider.
