All 15 Kashmir Valley railway stations, including Srinagar, have now got integrated with the Wi-Fi network of Indian Railways.
The vision was to convert the railway platform into a platform for digital inclusion. Today, the Wi-Fi network is spread over 6000+ railway stations across India and this is one of the largest integrated wi-fi networks in the world, IBNS said.
Railways Minister Piyush Goyal said, “Wi-Fi plays a significant role in connecting the people, and is bridging the digital divide between rural and urban India at a rapid pace. Indian Railways, in association with its RailTel Corporation of India Ltd, is playing a key role in bringing high-speed Wi-Fi to every corner of the country. Today, on World Wi-Fi Day, I am delighted to announce that Srinagar and 14 stations of the Kashmir Valley have become a part of one the largest integrated public Wi-Fi network in the world connecting 6000+ stations across the country. With this, all the stations of Valley now have public Wi-Fi. It is a crucial step for Digital India mission and will go a long way in connecting the unconnected.”
Indian Railways is working towards transforming railway stations into digital hubs by providing public Wi-Fi at railway stations across the country and 6021 stations are live with RailTel’s RailWire Wi-Fi.(SAM)
