The mobile number system in India is quite large with 8+ major providers on the market. The number allocation for each telecom carrier is different. Mainly the Indian mobile numbers start with ‘9’ or ‘8’ or ‘7’. It is a very difficult task to find the operator and circle of the mobile number. With the entry of new providers like JIO, the need for Jio number lookup API also increased. This is because of the new number allocation for these carriers. We are providing a free mobile operator finder API.
