Call Indore from UAE / Dubai

Follow this dialing procedure to make an overseas international call from the UAE to a landline or mobile phone number in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.

1. Dial UAE / Dubai int'l access code / IDD:  00

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.

2. Dial India country code:  91 

3. Remove '0' if one precedes your number

If your Indore destination phone number starts with a '0' - e.g., 0 731 454 8180 or 0 94 631 23456, delete the '0'.

4. Determine if calling to a landline or mobile phone

Indore 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 an Indore landline phone number...

a. Dial the 3-digit Indore area code:  731 

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

6. If calling an Indore mobile phone number...

Simply dial the 10-digit mobile number:  9x nnn nnnnn 

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.
