TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) is going to make big changes shortly. The organization has made several recommendations. It includes some changes, including an 11-digit mobile number and a ‘0’ mandatory before calling a mobile number from a landline number. These recommendations have been met by various stakeholders.
Now the mobile number will be ’11’ instead of ’10’
TRAI’s recommendation calls for making the mobile number 11-digit. Currently, there is a 10 digit mobile number in operation across the country. This 11th digit will be an extra ‘0’. The capacity of this number can be 1 crore.
Until now, landline users in the country can call a mobile number without entering ‘0’. According to the new recommendation, additional ‘0’ digits will have to be added first. However, no new rules apply to landline to landline calls.
This recommendation also introduces some changes to internet dongles. According to him, the mobile number connected to the internet dongle can be 13 digits. However, it is not clear when all these changes will be implemented.
