DoT Mandates ‘0’ Prefix For All Landline-To-Mobile Calls

New Delhi: Callers will be required to prefix “0” for making calls from landlines to mobile phones in the country. The direction came from the department of telecommunication (DoT) asking the telcos to prepare the required arrangements. The new system will be ready for implementation by January 1.

“All the fixed-line subscribers should be provided with `0′ dialling facility, that is, STD dialling facility,” according to a circular posted on Department of Telecom’s website.

The department has taken into account TRAI’s recommendation in this regard. This move of adding ‘0’ prefix for such calls will create sufficient numbering space for telecom services.

Earlier this year in May, the Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India had put forward their recommendation on dialling prefix “0” from fixed-line number to mobile phones. However, the regulator was of the view that the introduction of adding prefix is not in correspondence to increasing the number of digits in the telephone number. TRAI had later also stated that this change in dialling pattern is likely to generate 2,544 million additional numbering resources for mobile services to cater to future needs.
