Railways has been actively trying to provide free Wi-Fi service in railway stations and trains. So far, more than 700 railway stations provide free wi-fi to passengers.
Railway minister Piyush Goyal in a recent meeting with Railway Board members asked for 2,000 stations to get this service as soon as possible. Goyal told the officials that the service has been a huge help to the passengers which is why more stations should provide it soon.
He even said that Division railway managers will be awarded for completing the WiFi installation work early. Passengers travelling on UNESCO declared world heritage Kalka-Shimla section will now be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi service at all 18 stations.
Northern Railway announced earlier this week that 15 stations including Barog, Dharampur Himachal, Gumman, Koti, Kumarhatti Dagshai, Sonwara, Taksal, Kandaghat, Salogra, Knoh, Kathleghat, Shoghi, Tara Devi, Jutogh and Summerhill have been turned into free Wi-Fi zones. Read More
