Subscriber Trunk Dialling or STD Codes are the numbers assigned to each city/town/village in India for the purpose of making telephone calls from landline phones in one area to landline phones in other area.

At present there are around 22 telecom circles or cellular zones in India. All mobile numbers in India have the prefix 7, 8 or 9.
