The latest in poll by the National Party is the polling of a wrong question, which has already been clarified by the DOT.

The congress twitter handle post’s the below question, before you read make sure this has already been verified and is a wrong tweet by the Congress.

The Department of Telecom (DoT) has issued a directive instructing all telecom operators in the country to start issuing 13-digit mobile numbers later this year. Are you happy with this decision? #IndiaSpeaks

However the BSNL has clarified for this stating that the instructions to lengthen the numbers from existing 10 digit apply only for machine-to-machine communication, not for regular users.

It said the customer’s number will remain same.
