  • Import-Module MSOnline
    $cred = Get-Credential
    Connect-MsolService -Credential $cred
    $oldLicense = "contoso:ENTERPRISEPACK"
    $newLicense = "contoso:ENTERPRISEPREMIUM"
    $users = Get-MsolUser -MaxResults 5000 | Where-Object { ($_.isLicensed -eq "TRUE" -and $_.city -eq "Mumbai")}
    foreach ($user in $users){
        $upn = $user.UserPrincipalName
        foreach ($license in $user.Licenses) {
            if ($license.AccountSkuId -eq $oldLicense) {
                $disabledPlans = @()
                Write-Host("User $upn will go from $oldLicense to $newLicense and will have no options disabled.")
                Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName $upn -AddLicenses $newLicense -RemoveLicenses $oldLicense

    But I suggest to manage License using AD Groups.
