Calling an India phone number from the United States requires a few more steps than it would if you were calling a local phone number. You’ll start by dialing an exit code so your phone call leaves this country. Do this by dialing 011.
Next, you’ll need to dial the country code for India, which is 91. After that, you’ll need to get more specific with your selection. You’ll need to dial the area code for the location you’re trying to reach. This number is typically between 2 and 4 numbers. For example, New Delhi is 11, Bombay is 22, Kanpur is 512 and Poona is 212.
After that, you can enter the actual phone number you’re trying to reach. That will be your area code along with the phone number, typically 10 digits total.
