The latest version of DC unlocker is what you need. DC unlocker does not require you to enter the code, it'll auto calculates and inputs the code. The modem is a new algorithm (algo) modem so the code you might have created using Universal unlocker or other calculators is most likely wrong. Check In DC unlocker and tell us how many trial attempts are remaining?

Thought as much. Your best chance @ unlocking this modem is either a firmware downgrade / upgrade or timer reset.

From the modem's dashboard, the should be an option to update firmware. or you check Airtel / HUAWEI website (google it) for the firmware

You have two options
1. Upgrade the firmware
2. Use a timer reset
