Phone users in India will never be required to add a ‘0’ or ‘+91’ prefix from now to call an STD numbers, as the telecom companies have begun to implement the full MNP order by the Department of Telecom (DoT). From now onwards, with this significant move, users in the country won’t require the prefix to call STD through their smartphones. Now be able to dial STD numbers without the oft-mentioned prefix. Details on this news can be grabbed right after this fold.
Of course, its an important step made by the telecom operators and the department and that too this removal of distinction between local and STD calls marks its goal in gaining mobile number portability (MNP). Several telecom company’s have already started to simplify the process, and in fact it seems to work for subscribers of Airtel in Mumbai and Delhi. While the Vodafone users in Mumbai aren’t activated to this service as yet, currently.
However, it will take some time to fix theis simplified dialing pattern, and still being rolled out leaving only chances that you may not be received it yet, because of your network operator and depends on your region. But nevertheless, this progession will be rolled out pretty soon nation-wide before you enter July. And why is that?
July is the date given as a deadline to telecom companies by Department of Telecom to fully implement MNP. By this, users will be enabled to change their telecom operator without ever changing their current phone numbers, for example; if you are on Bharti Airtel – transform your number to Idea without changing your fancy number, its simply like portability, which I recently did with Aircel in Hyderabad.
Now that MNP exists, but only if the number is registered in the same circle, and later after July, it will be changing something massively. You will be able to port your numbers anywhere across India without considering of circles.
What do you think about MNP and that too no need to add prefix to make STD calls?
