why do we use the term colonial while writing about the British rule in India

British Empire represented a major colonial power of the 19th century whereby it established control over many countries in Asia and Africa established them as areas whereby it could exercise its influence and domination both economically and politically. British rule in India was initially represented by East India Company which was primarily a trading corporation, however with the industrial revolution and growing British economic interests, the British empire indulged in territorial expansion establishing political control as well over these areas, thus emerging as a Colonial Power where it extended its influence and power over weaker counties and people.
