One step closer to full MNP

One of the main technical problem of full MNP was STD dialing pattern. At present, STD numbers can only be dialed by adding either ‘0’ or ‘+91? as the prefix. But post full MNP STD and local numbers cannot be differentiated and should have same dialing pattern. These changes require configuration modifications in each of the operator nodes and operators had sorted more time to implement this before full MNP. DoT had recently given two months extension for operators to implement full MNP on grounds of these technical issues.

As per the latest deadline set by DoT, full MNP will be implemented in the country by July. A full MNP will allow the subscribers to move from one mobile networks to other in any telecom circles in the country. So customer can retain his mobile number in any part of the country without paying for roaming charges.

I am calling from Patna with my Airtel no. to Deoghar in Jharkhand to another Airtel no.
If both sims have been bought by my father in Deoghar what type of call it is? Std or local?

I think you should throw all the SIM cards and buy new one.

@Ashwini – if BOTh the SIM’s are from TN (including Chennai) and A calls B – this will be a local call. Depending on whether B (who is using the sim in KK) has incoming free on Roaming he/she would be/would not be charged.
