With local DID numbers becoming increasingly popular, we’re often asked about their capabilities in specific countries around the world. India DID numbers are no exception. In this article we’ll talk about India DID numbers, their specifics and their “conference calling only” feature.
India DID numbers
India local numbers through AVOXI are available in three cities, Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi. Unlike other DID numbers that can receive incoming calls, local India numbers can only be used for conference calling purposes due to certain government restrictions. However, these phone numbers are especially useful for India based call centers or wholesale customers who use local numbers for conference calling services.
Conference calling only
The government in India sometimes adds restrictions to their phone numbers for customers based outside their country. In this instance, customers outside of India can only use local DID phone numbers for conference calling capabilities.
Customers utilizing these phone numbers simply choose a conference bridge provider to set up this calling feature on their new local DID number. Once a conference bridge is installed on your local India DID number, you simply give attendees of your conference a code to use in order to access the call.
Although the phone number won’t be used for local calling, the phone number is still formatted just like any phone number in Mumbai, Bangalore or Delhi would be.
Since phone numbers in India are so highly regulated, very few providers get the opportunity to provide them to their customers. Luckily, AVOXI has the pleasure of providing these conference calling phone numbers in three major cities in India.
An India local DID number can provide a lot of convenience for customers around the world looking for local conference calling. If you’re interested in this type of number, talk to your provider about how it can fit your needs.
