Note that some mobile operators may not require an IDD and/or allow use of substitute characters (such as '+') in lieu of an international access code.

If your Patna destination phone number starts with a '0' - e.g., 0 612 454 8180 or 0 94 631 23456, delete the '0'.

4. Determine if calling to a landline or mobile phone

Patna landline numbers are 7-digits and require a separate 3-digit area code. Mobile numbers are 10-digits and do not require a separate area code. Check here to learn how to tell landline vs. mobile phone numbers.

5. If calling a Patna landline phone number...

a. Dial the 3-digit Patna area code:  612 

b. Dial a 7-digit local subscriber number:  nnn nnnn 

6. If calling a Patna mobile phone number...

NOTE: In addition to '9x' series mobile numbers, India now also issues '8x' series mobile numbers in the same 10-digit format:  8x nnn nnnnn.

Confusingly, the area codes used for landline numbers in some areas also start with '8x'. An example is Bangalore which uses area code '80'. But where landline '8x' area codes are tied to a specific region, mobile '8x' numbers can be issued for any location nationally.
