BSNL is now offering subscriber to choose BSNL number online without any extra charge. This service is free of charge and user will require to pay normal charge of a SIM card and respective activation charges.
Here I would like to say the numbers are not vanity numbers but if you may get some fair good numbers.
How to choose BSNL number:
Step 1. Go to http://sancharsoft.bsnl.co.in/auction/vacant_nos/choose_ur_no.html directly. You will find a map of India highlighting different states. Click on the image. a popup will appear asking to clink on it. Choose your circle link from the window if you live in an state which has more than one circles.
(If you are using old computer then after clicking wait for a moment. It may take some time to work.)
Step 2. On the page where you landed will see a slider asking to unlock the site. Drag the slider and unlock it.
Step 3. Now its time to search your number and lock it. However you will not find any 4 times repeating number but you may find a lot of thrice repeating number. After choosing the number user needs to lock his choice. Check the check box and hit “reserve number” button at just above the table. When you hit the button you will need to provide a mobile number on which a 7 digit pin will be sent. However, They will also flash the number on the screen. Using the same “Pin” verify it and lock it.
Step 4. After locking the number you will be required to visit BSNL customer service center (CSC) or a franchisee for documentation (within 96 hrs of generating). At BSNL CSC or Franchisee provide them the BSNL mobile number you locked and the seven digit PIN. After documentation you will be instantly provided the SIM.
