As the name suggests, the Audi Q7 Black Edition gets a blacked-out grille along with the air intakes in the front. The sides display the gloss black finished door trims. A similar finish can be seen on the B and C pillars along with the wing mirrors. The roof rails and the alloy wheels are also finished in gloss black while the alloy wheels get a matte black finish. The updates are limited to the exterior only, while the cabin and the mechanicals of the SUV stay the same.

The Audi Q7 Black Edition gets the same petrol and diesel option as before – 3.0-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre petrol engine. The former produces 249PS while the latter puts out 251PS. Both the engines come mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Commenting on the announcement, Balbir Singh Dhillon, head of Audi India, said, “Audi has been a pioneer in the luxury SUV segment and the Audi Q7 particularly has maintained competitive advantage ever since its launch. At the top of luxury, our customers want to showcase their individuality and exclusivity; the new Audi Q7 Black Edition will offer our customers just that – great features and innovative accessories in a limited-edition model. We are selling only 100 units of the Audi Q7 Black Edition and are confident that Audi family members and luxury aficionados will grab the opportunity to own this attractive car. To uplift the consumer sentiment this festive season, Government of India’s initiative of 30 per cent depreciation will act like a booster.”

TRAI recommends that shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme,Then everyone’s mobile number in India will change

TRAI recommends that shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme in case of mobile numbers. The regulator says that this new change will add a total capacity of 10 billion numbers.

TRAI, ( Telecom Regulatory Authority of India), on Friday released its latest recommendations to develop a ‘Unified Numbering Plan’ to ensure adequate number of resources for fixed lines aka landlines and mobile services in the country. This will cause the current phone number to change – the current mobile numbers will need to be applied “0” to dial from the fixed line connection. The regulator said in a statement that these recommendations are based on input from various stakeholders and discussions during the Open House Discussion (OHD). Of all the points encountered in the recommendations, one of the main points is to switch the digits from 10 to 11 in the case of regular mobile numbers. This means zero will be added next to the existing mobile number. However, new phone numbers may start with different digits.

Here,The recommendations are going to be shared, which can change the existing numbering system for both fixed line and mobile service.

  1. To call mobile numbers with a fixed line connection, it is mandatory to put “0” before the number. Please tell that it is not necessary to dial “0” to call a mobile number from a fixed line phone. According to the new recommendation, just as you dial an inter-service area mobile call from a fixed line phone, you must prefix the “0” to call the mobile phone within the service area as well.
  2. Shifting from 10-digit to 11-digit numbering scheme in case of mobile numbers – Another major recommendation by TRAI is to switch from 10 to 11 digits for mobile numbers, with the first digit being “9”. The regulator says that this new change will add a total capacity of 10 billion numbers.
  3. The number of mobile numbers distributed for the dongle should be converted to 13 digits – Like the numbers associated with our mobile phones, various devices such as dongles and data cards currently have a 10-digit numbering system. Now the new recommendation states that such devices should be increased from the current 10-digit to 13-digit.
  4. Moving fixed line numbers to sub-levels of “2” or “4” – Some operators had some time ago issued landline connections to numbers starting with “3”, “5” and “6”, which are now Not in service. TRAI recommends taking these closed connections to sub-levels of “2” or “4”. This will allow mobile operators to use these closed connection numbers for future mobile phone connections.
  5. All fixed line connections must come with the “0” dialing feature – currently, fixed line users who have opted for Subscriber Trunk Dialing (STD) are only given the “0” dialing feature. However, TRAI recommends allowing all fixed line customers to use the “0” dialing facility. This is necessary because mobile numbers will be required to dial from landline numbers with a “0” prefix.
