    Solution:

    India's first printing press was introduced in Goa.. The printing press was brought to India at Francis Xavier's initiative. He was a noted Bible teacher in Tamil Nadu's Tharangambadi in the 1540s and was a Christian missionary. For King Joao III of Portugal at the time, the viceroy of Goa established schools for Indians. Francis Xavier consequently requested that Portugal also send printing presses to Ethiopia, Japan, and India. The Goan clergy thought that they required a printing press. They requested access to the press from the governor general. The printing press therefore remained in Goa, India. At the Jesuit St. Paul's College in Old Goa, the country's first printing press was created in 1556.
