Starting January 15, all consumers trying to dial a mobile number using landline phones will need to prefix the mobile number with the numeral 0. The order is expected to free up sufficient numbering resources for future use.

β€œAll Fixed to Mobile calls will be dialled with prefix β€˜0’ from 15th January 2021...There will be no change in dialling plan from fixed to fixed, mobile to fixed and mobile to mobile calls,” the DoT said.
