Indian Railways to equip all stations with WiFi
As part of the Digital India initiative, the Indian Railways has announced its plan to equip all 8,500 rural and urban stations across the country with Wi-Fi by March 2019.
In a meeting held recently, 1,200 stations have been identified for this facility to primarily cater to rail passengers and about 7,300 stations have been earmarked to not only serve passengers but also local people in rural and remote areas.
Stations in rural areas will have Wi-Fi kiosks offering services like digital banking, Aadhaar generation, among others. The WiFi facility at stations will also facilitate the digital makeover of rural India to promote e-governance.
