India’s mobile revolution started with one symbolic call on this day 20 years ago.It all started when sometime in mid-1994, Basu invited B K Modi, who was the chairman of the erstwhile Modi Telstra, and me in his office at the Writers’ Building secretariat in kolkatta.

In a highly regulated environment, India has the highest number of mobile players in any service area in each of the country’s 22 telecom circles. Such intense competition has helped Indian users enjoy some of the world’s lowest tariffs. To top it all, a massive spectrum crunch and myriad problems in the deployment of telecom infrastructure couldn’t curb this growth impetus. It has survived despite several roadblocks. In fact, it is because of the people — the subscribers — that this industry has not only survived but actually thrived.

Today, two of the biggest development schemes of the government, Digital India and Smart Cities, rely on wireless telecommunications to bear the fruits of a connected society. Moreover, the other two government programmes, Skill India and Make in India, are predominantly relying on the power of telecom and technology. Had it not been for the mobile revolution, India’s buzzing startup scene wouldn’t have been half as vibrant as it is today.
