The rapid growth in telecommunication is fuelled by several interacting factors.Telecommunication has an unquestionably important role in the development of societies. It brings many benefits with few negative effects. The availability of a well developed telecommunications infrastructure offering quality services atreasonable prices is a key requisite for economic development. The case for deregulation is based on the realisation that communication sector is a vital engine of development and economic growth in other sectors of Indian economy. A limitation on growth in many country has been the lack of capital.
