Agra STD / area code

In India, area codes / STD codes are used somewhat differently than in other parts of the world. Specifically, the physical area and/or population that they cover is often quite small. As a result, India has hundreds and hundreds of STD codes -- many, many more than most countries.

Plus, area codes / STD codes are used only for landline phone numbers. Mobile phone numbers in India do not utilize area codes. Instead, the mobile prefixes '9x' and '8x' are used for all mobile numbers regardless of where the subscriber is based.

As a result, the Agra area codes listed on this page are only applicable when dialing to landline phone numbers.

Phone Number Formatting Guidelines

For dialing purposes, please take note of the following:

  • For areas with 2-digit STD codes: Subscriber numbers for areas with 2-digit area codes are 8-digits long (10-digits total).
  • For areas with 3-digit STD codes: Subscriber numbers for areas with 3-digit area codes are 7-digits long (10-digits total).
  • For areas with 4-digit STD codes: Subscriber numbers for areas with 4-digit area codes are 6-digits long (10-digits total).
