According to the new rules, from 1 January 2021, a zero (Zero) will be required to talk to a mobile number from any landline phone. This will allow telecom service providers to make more numbers. In this regard, the telecom department has also issued a circular on 20 November.
From the new year, the way to dial a mobile number from any landline phone in the country will change completely. The Department of Telecommunications has fully approved a proposal of Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
This is the new rule
According to the new rules, from 1 January 2021, a zero (Zero) will have to be applied to talk to a mobile number from any landline phone. This will allow telecom service providers to make more numbers. In this regard, the telecom department has also issued a circular on 20 November. It has been said in this circular that the recommendations of TRAI to change the way of dialing the number from landline to mobile on the landline have been accepted. This will facilitate the creation of sufficient numbers for mobile and landline services.
This facility is currently available for calls outside your area. Telecom companies have been given time till January 1 to adopt this new system.
254.4 million numbers will be generated from zero
With this change in the way of dialing, telecom companies will get the facility to create 254.4 crore additional numbers for mobile services. This will help in meeting future needs. After this, companies will also be able to issue new numbers.
Mobile number can be 11 digits
In the future, telecom companies can also issue 11-digit mobile numbers. At present, the number of mobile subscribers in the country is increasing rapidly, due to which the 10-digit mobile number is also falling. In such a situation, the use of zero will make the road ahead much easier.
