Dear Debashish ,

I don't think you can achieve that with cabling only. Besides, there is not much to do with one phone line other than connect it in parrallel to two phone sets.

However, with telecom industry prices going down so fast, you can get a small key or PDX-like phone system that does what you need and much, much more for $400 - $500 if not less for a refurbished unit.

If budget allows, I suggest this is the way you should go.
