The Howrah-Delhi Rajdhani is set to become the first train in the country to have wi-fi connectivity that would enable passengers to access Internet during their rail journey. The Railways have awarded the Rs 5.3-crore contract for equipping three rakes of the Delhi-Howrah-Delhi Rajdhani with the facility.

While the satellite link up cost is more than Rs 1 crore, it would cost about Rs 4 crore for the equipment to facilitate Internet access, a senior Railway Ministry official said. Internet facility is expected to be fully operational in two months.
