Indian Telecom Network

Each LDCA has a Long Distance Charging Centre (LDCC), which is a Trunk Automatic Exchange (TAX). Each SDCA has a Short Distance Charging Centre (SDCC). Normally each SDCC is an integrated local-cum-tandem or a transit switch. Each SDCA normally covers one or more taluka or other administrative areas. The size of SDCA generally varies.

Indian Telecom Network is divided into number of LDCAs. Each LDCA consists of one or more SDCAs, which are also known as local areas. Each SDCA has one or more number of exchanges.India has adopted type-2 structure for PSTN. Each SDCA is allotted a unique trunk code. There are at present 2645 SDCAs distributed in 322 LDCAs.

Accordingly, 2645 codes are required to identify the complete country based on SDCA linked numbering scheme. The length of the Trunk Code (TC) shall vary from 2 to 4 digits depending upon the size and telephone density requirement of the SDCA.

10 digits numbering scheme

With this uniform 10 digits SDCA linked numbering scheme, it would have following pattern:

The numbers starting from ‘2’ to ‘6’ are reserved for PSTN within SDCA. At present the PSTN numbers in SDCAs vary between 6 to 8 digits so that the total

Land line numbers are ranges from 6 digits to at most 8 digits long (usually in major metros). The total length of all phone numbers (STD code and the phone number) in India is constant at 10 digits, for example 040-23456789 signifies a STD code 040- Hyderabad & the phone number 23456789.
