DMRC Initiates Process for Providing Wi-Fi on Trains and Stations
Delhi Metro commuters will soon be able to access public Wi-Fi as authorities have initiated the process to bring all its stations and train coaches under the facility.

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has submitted a 'Request For Proposals' from mobile operators to install Wi-Fi hotspots at stations and trains in this regard.

The move is aimed at providing a tech edge to the rapidly expanding network, which currently stands at around 193km, and the burgeoning smartphone users.

"This was a long standing demand of the commuters. We have asked mobile operators to submit their proposals and will check feasibility and other parameters after that," an official said.

The deadline for the companies has been set around the end of May, the official added.

Recently, the DMRC had launched a unique initiative through which Android users could earn reward points which can be later redeemed to recharge their metro smart cards.

Currently, only trains and stations of the 5.1km-long Rapid Metro Network in Gurgaon are Wi-Fi enabled.

It has also upgraded its helpline to a more advanced 24x7 bilingual Interactive Voice Response System aimed especially at commuters who are not conversant with signages at station premises.
