New Delhi: With phone operators expected to run out of 10-digit mobile numbers soon, the Department of Telecom (DoT) is now considering an 11-digit numbering system.
As per a Zee News report, this could be implemented very soon.
The telecom department had come up with a 30-year numbering plan in 2003 but the fast growth in the telecom subscriber base has forced the authority to relook into its policy and consider 11-digit numbering system.
Every telecom operator is allocated a series of mobile numbers on requirement basis - for six months or a year depending on the customer base it has.
