Area Codes for Pune and Nearby Locations

Despite it's very large population, Pune proper currently has only one area code. Area codes for several locations near Pune are shown below.

Area codes are also sometimes called STD codes or 'subscriber trunk dialing' codes. In India, area codes are also known as SDCA codes. SDCA stands for 'short distance charging area'.

Pune area code / STD:   20 

Area codes are generally used to route inbound calls to a specific geographic area within a country. However, in India, mobile phone numbers do not utilize area codes, so the area code above applies only when dialing landline phones in Pune.

To make an inbound international call (or domestic long distance call) to a Pune landline phone, you need to dial this 2-digit area code, along with an 8-digit local subscriber number - 10-digits total.

If you are calling a Pune mobile phone number, you should not use this area code. Click here for further details on dialing a Pune mobile phone number - and for information on how to tell a landline number from a mobile number.

In some cases, area codes may be referred to as city codes. However, a 'city code' more correctly refers to the codes used for airports and other geographic designations under the UN's UN/LOCODE system and/or the IATA airport coding system.
