The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has made new recommendations which also include a ‘Unified Numbering Plan‘ for landline and mobile services. According to this recommendation, it will be mandatory to put “0” before calling the mobile number from the landline. Apart from this, it has also been suggested to increase the number of digits in existing mobile phones from 10 to 11 which is 11 Digit Mobile Number. Let me tell you that there is no need to apply zero for calling from landline to mobile.
11 Digit Mobile Number
If these recommendations of TRAI come into force, then about 10 billion mobile numbers will be affected. Under this, the number of digits in mobile numbers will be 11 and the number will start with 9 digits. At the same time, it has also been suggested to change the number of mobile numbers distributed for the dongle to 13 digits.
There have also been recommendations for landlines to move fixed line numbers to sub-levels of 2 or 4. A few days ago, some operators issued landline connections with numbers starting from 3, 5, and 6, but these numbers are no longer in service.
At the same time, TRAI has blamed the Department of Telecom for the short broadband connection in the country. According to the report, TRAI has also made a complaint to the Department of Telecommunications in the Prime Minister’s Office. The complaint states that the Department of Telecommunications is ignoring the recommendation to increase the number of broadband. Explain that the number of Internet users in India has crossed the 50 crore mark, while only 20 million people have landline broadband.
