The English language was introduced to India in the 17th century when English
businessmen came to the country as traders. Even after the British rule was over in the
middle of the 20th century, English remained in use in India. Almost two hundred thousand
people claimed English as their first language and 125 million claimed it as a second
language. Together with Hindi, English is used as the official language of the Indian
government. It is familiar to almost all people of India.
Nowadays, English is used in many fields such as business, education, administration and
law. All rules and regulations should be written in English according to the country’s
constitution. It is also used as the medium of communication among college-educated
people. It is mostly used in formal situations, whereas Indian languages are used in
personal conversation. For example, English is used for the news on TV, but serials are in
