In India in the year of 1880, two telephone companies ‘The Oriental Telephone Company Limited’ and ‘Anglo Indian Telephone Company Limited’ approached the Government of India to set up a telephone exchange in India. This permission was denied on the grounds that it was the monopoly of the government to set up the telephone and the government itself would start this work. In 1881, the government, against its earlier decision, licensed England’s ‘Oriental Telephone Company Limited’ to open telephone exchanges in Kolkata, Mumbai, Madras (Chennai) and Ahmedabad. This led to the establishment of the first formal telephone service in the country in 1881. January 28, 1882, is ‘Red Letter Day’ in India’s telephone history. On this day Major E. Baring, the then Governor-General of India Council, announced the opening of telephone exchanges in Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai. The Kolkata exchange was named ‘Central Exchange’, which opened on the third floor of the 7, Council House Street building. The Central Telephone Exchange had 93 customers. A similar telephone exchange was inaugurated in Mumbai in 1882.
The biggest challenge facing the Internet today is maintaining its credibility. Just as the Internet has contributed significantly to simplifying our lives, in the same way, it has also created many problems that are corrupting our society somewhere. See, today the work on the internet is less and it is being misused more. Problems like pornography have reached every part of the Internet. It has been seen that mindless people put pictures of their friends and friends on the internet, but websites that serve pornography steal them and start abusing them. Another big challenge in front of it is cybercrime, in the guise of which people keep trying to create a situation like cyberwar in the country by spreading rumours. Despite all these negative facts, telecommunication technology today is proving helpful for prosperity in countries with a large population like India. Being influenced by the continuous development in this sector, many young people are coming forward in this sector by dreaming of a good career.
