How to Transfer Balance in Ncell? [Easy Steps]

Ncell subscribers can transfer the money/balance from their account to another Ncell number. The balance transfer can only apply to the main balance of their mobile. This service benefits any Ncell number to send balance anytime to their friends or family’s number of Ncell Nepal using some code. Here is the process for how to transfer the balance in Ncell from another Ncell number.

Ncell prepaid subscribers can send a balance of amount Rs 10 to Rs 200 at a time to another Ncell number. So here the minimum balance that can be sent is Rs 10 and the maximum amount to send is Rs 200 at a time.

Ncell limits the no of transfer to only 3 times, so the maximum balance that can be transferred in a day is Rs 600.

This money transfer service will help customers to avoid any inconveniences due to the unavailability of balance.


Remember the balance transfer cannot be done from Ncell to Ntc or other operators’ numbers or even from Ncell prepaid to Ncell postpaid SIM and vice versa. So, the balance transfer is only allowed from Ncell to Ncell number.
