phone numbers by November
NEW DELHI, Sept 13 (PTI) Telephone numbers throughout the country will change into a 10-digit system by November to cope with the growth of telecom networks and introduction of value-added services. The new numbering plan being prepared by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) in consultation with the Department of Telecom and private operators would be implemented by November, official sources told PTI. A new numbering system was planned since the present system having a capacity of a billion numbers is getting congested just with 20 million numbers, especially following introduction of new value added services, the sources said.
CHENNAI, Sept 13 (PTI) As many as 2.47 lakh government employees in Tamil Nadu will get a 'personal pay' of 5 per cent of their basic salary from next month as per the recommendations of the Sivasubramaniam Commission.
