Colon ( : ) A colon means "that is to say" or "here's what I mean." 
Use a colon to introduce an item or a series of items. Do not capitalize the first item after the colon (unless it's a proper noun).
Eg: Items required to make tea: milk, tea powder, sugar, water
The key to success: hard work.

Semi-Colon ( ; )
Colons and semicolons should never be used interchangeably, వీటిని ఒకదాని బదులు ఒకటి వాడలేం.
A semicolon may be used between independent clauses joined by a connector, such as, and, but, or, nor, etc.
The most common use of the semicolon is to join two independent clauses without using conjunctions 'like' 'and'. Do you use a capital letter after a semicolon? The general answer is no. A semicolon should be followed by a capital letter only if the word is a proper noun or an acronym.
Also, when one or more commas appear in the first clause.
Eg: When I assume office, and I will soon, I'll be glad to help you; and that is a promise I will keep.
