All mobile numbers in India have the prefix 9, 8 or 7 (This includes pager services, but the use of pagers is on the decline). Each zone is allowed to have multiple private operators (earlier it was 2 private + BSNL/MTNL, subsequently it was changed to 3 private + BSNL/MTNL in GSM, now each zone has more than 10 operators including BSNL/MTNL. All mobile phone numbers are 10 digits long. The way to split the numbers is defined in the National Numbering Plan 2003 as XXXX-NNNNNN where XXXX is the Network operator,NNNNNN is the subscriber numbers.
(Note:- The mobile numbers and operators are subject to change since Mobile number portability is available in most circles.)
