1. Primary Lines

IDD connections are enabled for the primary line of the Head of Department/Office (HoD) and for his/her secretary’s primary line with the HoD’s approval. IDD connections are also available for primary line of a staff who is recommended by his/her HoD. Those IDD-enabled extensions will be provided with a unique password which will be prompted while making IDD calls.
