DoT has put on hold its plan to implement an 11-digit mobile numbering system on account of security issues. This follows stiff opposition from the major operators. According to the operators, it would be difficult for them to implement the proposal to prefix 9 to all the existing mobile numbers on account of the technical changes that need to be made in terms of both software and network configurations. Therefore, the government is now mulling over the Cellular Operators Association of India's (COAI) suggestion to get the slot for 10-digit numbers beginning with 7 and 8 vacated and allocated to mobile services. COAI has pointed out that opening up these levels will generate 2,000 million additional numbering resources, which will cater to 1,200 million new subscribers, which would be sufficient to meet the requirement of mobile numbers for the next seven to 10 years.
