Let us tell you that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had made new recommendations, which according to it also included ‘Unified Numbering Plan’ for landline and mobile services. According to this recommendation, it will be mandatory to put “0” before calling the mobile number from the landline. Apart from this, it was also suggested to increase the number of digits in existing mobile from 10 to 11. Currently, there is no need to levy zero for calling from landline to mobile phone.
