  3. 3.  In early 1881, Oriental Telephone Company Limited of England opened telephone exchanges at Calcutta (Kolkata), Bombay (Mumbai), Madras (Chennai) and Ahmedabad.  On the 28th January 1882 the first formal telephone service was established with a total of 93 subscribers.  From the year 1902 India drastically changes from cable telegraph to wireless telegraph, radio telegraph, radio telephone, trunk dialing.  Later moved to digital microwave, optical fiber, satellite earth station. During British period all major cities and towns in India were linked with telephones.  In the year 1975 Department of Telecom (DoT) was responsible for telecom services in entire country after separation from Indian Post & Telecommunication.  Decade later Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) was chipped out of DoT to run the telecom services of Delhi and Mumbai.
  4. 4.  In 1990s the telecom sector was opened up by the Government for private investment. In1995 TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) was setup.  This reduced the interference of Government in deciding tariffs and policy making.  The Government of India corporatized the operations wing of DoT in 2000 and renamed Department of Telecom as Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL).
  5. 5.  From 2001 to 2011, the total number of telephone subscribers has grown at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 35 per cent.  The comparable rates in the 1980s and 1990s were 9 per cent and 22 per cent, respectively.  Demand side factors—ultra low cost of handsets, low tariffs and ultimately the ease of using a phone—as well as supply side factors have made mobiles popular in India. The regulatory reforms in the telecom sector from 2000 to 2011 can be broadly classified into the following three distinct phases.  Phase 1 – 2000–2003: Telecom sectors were opened up to competition.  Phase 2 – 2004–2007: Regulator encouraged competition and also set the stage for future growth.  Phase 3 – 2008–2011: More choices were brought in for consumers in terms of technology and services.
