This entire case is related to the telecom company Aircel which closed in 2018. Aircel had to shut down its wireless service in 2018 after a tough challenge from Reliance Jio and other telecom companies.

TRAI Deadline

Aircel stopped its service completely in February 2018. At that time the company had 90 million users. Aircel had asked TRAI to give UPC (Unique Porting Code) for these users so that these users can port their mobile number to another network.

To generate this, users have to go to the message box and type PORT and their mobile number. After that, it has to send to 1900. After sending the message in 1900, users will receive UPC through SMS. With the help of this code, users will get their number port to another operator’s network. Keep in mind that its deadline has kept on 31 October.
