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.
“All Fixed to Mobile calls will be dialled with prefix ‘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.
