The history behind India phone numbers
The history of Indian phone numbers dates back to the late 19th century, when the first telegraph lines were laid in the country by the British colonial authorities. The first telephone exchange in India was set up in the city of Kolkata (then Calcutta) in 1882, and by the turn of the 20th century, telephone services were available in several cities across the country.
In the early days, telephone numbers in India were typically four or five digits long, with the first two digits indicating the exchange code, and the remaining digits indicating the subscriber's individual number. However, as telephone usage grew in the country, it became necessary to introduce longer phone numbers to accommodate the increasing demand for phone lines.
In the 1950s, India's national telecom operator, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), introduced the "STD" (Subscriber Trunk Dialing) system, which allowed callers to make long-distance calls within the country without the assistance of an operator. As part of this system, a two-digit "STD code" was assigned to each city or region in India, which had to be dialed along with the local phone number to make a long-distance call.
In the 1990s, India's telecom sector was liberalized, and private companies were allowed to enter the market. This led to the introduction of mobile phones, and a new system of mobile phone numbers was introduced in 2003. Mobile phone numbers in India are ten digits long, with the first four digits indicating the service provider, and the remaining six digits indicating the subscriber's individual number.
Technical info on India phone numbers
India phone numbers consist of a 10-digit number that starts with either a 7, 8, or 9. The first three digits indicate the network provider, and the following seven digits make up the unique subscriber number. There are different codes for landline numbers, mobile numbers, and toll-free numbers. The country code for India is +91, which is to be added before the 10-digit number while dialing from outside India.
