Indian Railways will set up Wi-Fi hotspot kiosks at about 500 stations in remote area and help people access an array of online services, including various government schemes.
 
Named as Railwire Saathi, the Wi-Fi kiosks will function like a PCO for Digital India and enable people to use services like e-commerce, online banking, offer them access to open school/university and insurance schemes, e-ticketing for train and bus services among others.
 
The Railwire Saathi is a Wi-Fi entrepreneurship model where unemployed youths, preferably women, can be trained to set up a Wi-Fi hotspot and provide a platform to online services which will make the business sustainable.
 
RailTel, the telecom arm of railways, would execute the scheme across the country.
