1923 __ Radio Club of Bombay
Comment : The first station in India was operated by the Radio Club of Bombay in June 1923. (It has also been reported that Chandhar Bose carried out a number of experiments in Calcutta between 1915 and 1925.) A national Broadcasting Service was set up on an experimental basis in July 1927 simultaneously at Bombay and Calcutta under an agreement between Government of India and a private company called the Indian Broadcasting Company Ltd. When India became independent, the AIR network had only six Stations located at Delhi, Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, Lucknow and Tiruchirapalli with a total complement of 18 transmitters - six on the medium wave and the remaining on short wave. Radio listening on medium wave was confined to urban limits of those cities. (Barry Mishkind, “The Broadcast Archives”, www.oldradio.com)
