India competed in its first Fed Cup in 1977, but did not compete again until 1991.[2] Since 1991, India has been competing annually (except 1993). India's best result was reaching the Asia/Oceania Group I final in 2006.

In 2004, Manisha Malhotra and Sania Mirza broke the record for playing the longest tiebreak (21-19) in their doubles match against Uzbekistani pair Vlada Ekshibarova and Ivanna Israilova.[2]
