One common struggle for mobile users in Nepal has been transferring balances from one NTC (Nepal Telecom) SIM card to another. Previously, this task was more complex than one would hope. The process involved keeping track of a security code often misplaced or making a trip to the Telecom Service Center to verify your identity through your Citizenship card. Thankfully, Nepal Telecom has taken the concerns of its customers seriously and has introduced an easier way to make these transactions directly from your mobile phone. Let’s dive into the specifics.
Limitations of NTC’s Balance Transfer Service
Before we proceed, it’s essential to familiarize yourself with certain limitations that come with this service:
No Service Fee: Nepal Telecom does not charge a fee for transferring balances.
Amount Limits: The minimum balance you can send is Rs 10, and the maximum is Rs 500.
Validity: Transferring a balance to another phone will not extend the recipient’s mobile phone’s validity period.
Frequency: You can only make up to 20 balance transfers per day.
Receiver Requirements: The recipient’s SIM card must be prepaid or CDMA.
Methods to Transfer Balance from NTC to NTC
There are multiple pathways to transfer balances between NTC numbers:
Via the NT App: Utilize the ‘Transfer Balance’ feature.
USSD Code: Dial 422 Code Recipient Number Amount#
Selfcare Portal: Visit ntc.net.np and use the Selfcare option.
While methods 1 and 3 are more straightforward, method 2 requires more effort. Let’s discuss how you can achieve this.
Step-by-Step Guide: How to Transfer Balance Using USSD Code
Request Security Code: Compose a new text message containing the word “Scode” and send it to 1415.
Receive the 8-digit Code: Shortly, you’ll receive an SMS that includes your 8-digit Security Code.
Execute the USSD Code: Dial 422, followed by your 8-digit Security Code, the recipient’s phone number, and the amount you wish to transfer. For example, if your Security Code is 12345678, and you wish to send Rs 100 to 9847600000, dial 422123456789847600000100#.
And voila! You’ve successfully transferred the balance.
