Area (STD) Code for Honavar Durable Link to this BLOG
Area (STD) Code for Honavar?

I am told that the STD (area) codes for Honavar are changed. Does anyone know the new ones? Pl. let me know via email (Contact Kamats) or via Yahoo instant messenger as vikas_kamat

It used to be 08387. My mother gave me the new one as 0387 over the telephone, but that doesn't seem to work.8-(

Thank you!

Update Jan 20, 2003, Noon

I've gotten five different answers from five different sources. The mystery continues....
• Link to Bharat Sanchar Nigam's Search (says it's 0838)
• Link to Google' Search
• 387 instead of 8387
• 8386 instead of 8387
• Info. from a relative: Add a number 7 between old code and the number

Other than the last one, I've tried all, and they don't work.

Update Jan 21, 2003, 8:25 PM

I've finally figured it out. The new area code for Honavar is 83877. For the town of Kumta it is 83866.

Even the residents of this town didn't know their area code was changed. There was no notice, no public posting, not even a message when folks dialed the old area code. Welcome to e-Governance, a pet keyword of the politicians in India.

Update November 21, 2004, 9:21 PM

True to their modus operandi the telephone authorities have changed the area code again! The new area code for Honavar as of November 21 is: 83872
