Ravi Shankar Prasad launches free WI-FI Facility at Tajmahal

Agra: Tourists visiting the Tajmahal can now will be able to access the free Wi-Fi service for the first 30 minutes as the Union Minister for Communications and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday inaugurated a Wifi hotspot at the Taj Mahal making it a free WI-FI zone.

After getting a free WI-FI service for limited 30 minutes per 24 hours, a customer can continue using the service on paid basis for which subscription plans are available in various denominations, the Communications and IT ministry said in a statement.

Minister of State for HRD Ram Shankar Katheria, BSNL CMD Anupam Shrivastava and BSNL director N.K. Gupta, among other senior officers in the telecom company were present at the occasion here.

The facility has been set up by state-run operator BSNL which has been planning to introduce Wifi services at other tourist and religious locations, including Fatehpur Sikri, Khajuraho and Jagannath Puri and others, by March 2016.

As part of the Digital India programme, the government is working towards enabling all cities with a population of over one million and tourist centres with wi-fi hotspots.

In February, BSNL had launched Wi-Fi facility at Dashashwamedh Ghat and Shitala Ghats of Varanasi.

"BSNL has plans to invest more than Rs. 1,200 crore in UP (West) Circle during 2015-16. Out of this approximate Rs. 200 crore will be invested in upgrading and expanding mobile network," Mr Prasad said.

"This expansion will help in providing improved 3G services to existing BSNL subscribers as well as in 152 new cities/towns," the minister added.

About Rs. 982 crore will be invested in National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) under Phase-I covering 14,474 village panchayats spread over 227 blocks of UP(W) Circle, he said.
