Important Utility (TollFree) Numbers in India

Important Utility (TollFree) Numbers in India

With the Hon'ble Telecommunication Minister of India, Sri Dayanidhi Maran, bringing revolutionary changes in the India Telecommunications fields, including the single STD code for the entire district, single STD tariff for the entire country from sometime January in 2006.

Perhaps, we have also discussed sometime back about Number Portability in India which is also currently in research by TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India).

Somewhere in the hardcopy pamplet in Chennai, I got hold of a list of Utility Telephone Numbers to reach in case of emergencies and to avail services of service providers with a single telephone number all over India.

I just thought instead of just keeping it as a small pamplet, I can share it with other readers for full use of the same.

Please note that most of these numbers beginning with 1-600 would be restricted to BSNL or MTNL Network powered telephones only. Of late, I don't think other service providers are so much mature or open enough to support these numbers for the country sake.

Please feel free to update this section with the contact numbers you know as comments and/or also contact me so that I can update the main category also.
