Union Minister for Railways Piyush Goyal on August 28 while addressing media said that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led central government will soon install WiFi at as many as 6,000 railway stations across the country.
Minister Goyal said, “This facility will not only help passengers to travel with ease but will also aide them to gain additional information pertaining to their profession such as farming, teaching.”
He further said, “I believe that people, especially the ones residing in villages, such as children, farmers, working women will be benefitted because of the Wifi facility at the stations.”
Goyal further added that the ministry will soon roll-out bio-vacuum toilets in train coaches, similar to those installed in passenger airplanes.
While addressing media when asked about Ministry’s plan of starting a helpline service for Railways, Minister Goyal said that the plan is in the pipeline and is being stalled due to some technical issues.
