Now your mobile number can be 11 digits. Telecom Regulatory of India (TRAI) has moved a proposal on Friday. In this proposal, TRAI has suggested using the mobile number of 11 digits in the country. According to TRAI, by changing the 10 digits mobile number to an 11 digits mobile number, more numbers will be available in the country.
Mobile number capacity will increase to 1 thousand crores in the country
In its proposal in TRAI, if the first digit of the mobile number is kept to 9, then the switch from 10 to 11 digits to the mobile number will have a total capacity of 10 billion (1000 crore) numbers in the country. TRAI further said that 70 percent utilization and up to 700 crore connections with the existing policy is enough.
When calling, you have to put ‘0’ in front of the number.
Apart from this, TRAI has also proposed to put ‘0’ in front of the mobile number while calling from the fixed-line. For now, for inter-service area mobile calls with fixed-line connection, the number ‘0’ is required to be placed at the beginning. However, mobile numbers can also be accessed from the landline without initially adding zero. TRAI said that all free sub-levels at levels 2, 3, 4, and 6 can be used as mobile numbers if it is mandatory to apply zero to call mobiles from the fixed network.
A new national numbering plan will come
Apart from this, it has also suggested a new national numbering plan, which is to be made available as soon as possible. Also, TRAI has also asked to increase the mobile number used for dongles from 10 digits to 13 digits.
