“This change in dialling pattern will generate 2,544 million additional numbering resources for mobile services to cater to the future requirements,” it said.

Reliance Jio, too, had sent messages to fixed-line users urging them to ensure that they prefix 0 when dialling any mobile number from a fixed line number. “This change in dialling pattern effective Jan 15 is in accordance to the directive from DoT,” Jio’s message said.

However, there will be no change with respect to dialling numbers for fixed-to fixed, mobile-to-fixed, and mobile-to-mobile calls.
