According to Rediff:

"Hutchison established its presence in India in 1994, through a joint venture with Max India Limited. In 1995, Hutchison Max Telecom became the first operator in India to launch its cellular service. Today, Hutchison is the one of the largest providers of cellular services in India with presence in all the major regions -- Orange in Mumbai and Hutch in Gujarat, Kolkata, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Delhi, Chennai, Haryana, Rajasthan and UP (E). It is part of the Hong Kong-based multinational conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa Ltd, a Fortune 500 company, and one of the largest companies listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Its operations span 41 countries across the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and the Americas.

It's now known pan-India as Vodafone."

However, the Cellular Operators Association of India COAI, lists the following:
"Modi Telstra launched the first cellular operation in the country in Calcutta under the brand name "Modi Telstra" on 23 AUG 1995.
