7) Now you will receive PIN No on your mobile number. Enter the PIN No to reserve your selected number.

enter PIN number and click confirm

NOTE: If you activated DND on your number, then you won’t receive PIN No. Make sure you remove your DND to get SMS. 

7. You will get a confirmation message saying “Required! Success. CYMN reservation will be held for 72 hours” (3 days)

Your mobile number is reserved for only 72 hours or 3 days

12. Now visit your nearest BSNL Office with Photo, ID proof, and money and your reserved BSNL mobile number.

On the spot (in BSNL office) they will provide BSNL number of your choice (which you have chosen in online).

That’s it. This is how you can buy BSNL SIM card online with a number of your choice.

  1. May i get a sim card if i don’t have a local ID card? I have other ID card which belongs to other states.
    Anyway, very nice post. Thank you so much.

      1. But online filled up form they doesn’t accept. Even fancy price to whom i wll pay they doesn’t idea they dicussing each other.

    1. For normal SIM Card Rs.20 you have to pay. For FRC (first recharge), it depends on the plan you select. Usually, it is from Rs.30 to Rs.60.

  2. I was looking to ditch Airtel due to net neutrality violations. I applied for BSNL in a jiffy. Thanks to the detailed info here.

  3. This site is not working, becz my application is not submit after fully filed

    if you have any solution pls sugget me urgently……

    1. You need to fill all the three Name fields. I faced same issue. I entered in Surname three spaces. Than it moved to next screen. If clicked Submit it was not doing anything. I don’t know why they made mandatory all three Name fields.

      1. Do not fill application online. It creates unnecessary conflicts. Show the SMS in BSNL Exchange or Franchisee with your documents. They will fill the application.


    i want a bsnl sim but choice no not availble towards six month. what is our system in odisha . bsnl care are very careless .

  5. After choosing the number , i fill the pin any my mobile number which i am using but it is showing me the same msg again and again that you application has been submitted but i didnot fill any information. So whats a problem now. How i go futher?

    1. मे भोपल मे रहता हू मुझे bsnl की सीम चाहीऐ जीस का न._94250*****

  7. Hi,
    Indeed a nice article. I reserved a number for me, but, my question is, within how many days I have to approach BSNL office to get the sim?


    1. I’m not sure about within how many days we have to submit those documents… I recommend you to go as soon as possible. If you know the number of days that mobile number will be locked just comment here so others will also get benefited.

      1. As of now, it is 96 hrs. i.e. 4 days. But it is best to take SIM on the same day. Sometimes, the documents may not be accepted and without proper documents, number won’t be given to you.

  44. Hi arun,

    Its very nice and good presentation and its very nice i love your ideology and the way of the explanation to book VIP and Fancy mobile number can you please have a look at the and suggest all to book the vip and fancy mobile numbers

  45. Useful post but not very useful facility from BSNL because anyway you have to visit the BSNL office to collect the SIM which is the actual pain in the ass for many people.

    1. I just updated the website URL. You can visit now.

      Note: I haven’t updated the screenshot yet, and I may update later. But the process is still the same.

  46. I have asked tried to reserve a number 94902621XX from fancy list worth 59 rs but i haven’t received the PIN via OTP yet.
