The starting digit for phones of different types (landline, mobile, etc.) as also for different operators such as BSNL, MTNL, Tata, Reliance, etc. are fixed by the telecom dept. of the govt. to avoid overlapping and confusion. It was decided to have the digit 9 as the starting number for all mobile nos. which gave 10 digits total, as in the case of other countries by convention. The govt. thought that 10 digits for mobile nos. would be adequate for the country\'s needs.
Now recent reports suggest that the growth in mobile phones in India has gone up fast and so the existing 10 digits would become inadequate soon. The govt. is therefore considering a proposal to have two more digits added to the existing 10 digits to meet the explosive growth in mobile phones in India.

+91 is the ISD code for India, so an Indian Number will always start with +91.
Moreover, the regulatories in India have prescribed any mobile number to start with 9 to avoid any confusion with the regular landline numbers.
