Tata Communications Limited (hereinafter referred as Tata Communications) is the new name of VSNL, which as of January 28, 2008. Prior to this Tata Communications has a history of more than 135 years in handling the international telecommunications needs of the country.

Tata Communications (as VSNL) was incorporated on March 19, 1986 under the Indian Companies Act, 1956 to take over the activities of the erstwhile Overseas Communication Services (OCS). In February 2002, the Government of India, as per their disinvestments plan, sold 25% of their holding in the company to the strategic partner. Consequently, the company was taken over under the administrative control of TATA. It is under the management of TATAs – India's best known industrial house – that Tata Communications is now charting its future course.

Prior to this, The Eastern Telegraph Co. (ETC) of 1872 and the Indian Radio Telegraph Co. (IRT) of 1927 merged to form the Indian Radio and Cable Communications Co. (IRCC) in 1932. The Government of India took over the IRCC, giving birth to the Overseas Communications Service (OCS), a Government Department.
