First internet connectionVidesh Sanchar Nigam had given the country's first internet connection, which required a landline phone to operate. ERNET's NCST team was selected to register the domain name for the first Internet connection in India. This first service was like public service, for which there was no charge, but soon difficulties arose.

Since domain names were not registered in India at that time, such a problem arose that any person or organization could register any domain. That is, any organization or person other than Railways could also register IndianRailways.com domain.

The story of the Internet started in India in the 70s, but it was only related to developing its understanding at that time. Subsequently, a dial up link was introduced in 1986 for the introduction of email service between NCST and IIT Bombay. Commercial use of the Internet began in 1995. In 1989, the Internet was used only for education and research work.
During that time internet was available through National Education and Research Network (ERNET). In 1995, only Satyam Infoway was an ISP provider company, whereas today there are more than 358 ISP companies in the country who are bringing internet to people at home. An interesting story of that time is related to the e-mail before the e-mail.

In ASL, this experiment was done in the late 1980s when the dial up connection and lease line at IIT Kanpur found it difficult to find an alternative to using email. IITK and NCST discovered this option in mutual coordination.
The alternative was that the mail was written in a floppy and this floppy was sent via courier. In the floppy computer world, there was a time before CD. But soon dilemmas arose on this floppy mail as to why it takes more than three days to reach the mail? The idea started and the process of growing steadfastly towards email started.
