Why can I no longer make calls to India from India?

As of 10 November 2014, if you are in India, calling from Skype to mobiles and landlines within India will unfortunately no longer be available.

This change only affects Skype calls to landlines and mobiles; you can still make free Skype-to-Skype calls within India, and you can still call mobiles and landlines in India from outside the country (as well as make calls from India to other countries) You can also use any Skype Credit you currently have to use Skype WiFi or to send SMS messages to your contacts.

If you've bought a subscription to India specifically to call within the country, you can cancel your subscription to avoid being billed in the future.

Learn more about options you have with your subscription.
