Nearly ten months ago, I had mentioned about Indian Railways trying to get internet savvy. Railways was running trials on the Shatabdi running between Ahmedabad and Mumbai to make internet connectivity available to the passengers. But it appears like the railways did not have a clear plan when they started the trials.
The trials seem to be now complete, but there is no proposal to expand to more lines yet. Railways only says that the trials being complete, a report has been submitted to the railways ministry, which is being further examined.
A report on Business Standard says "The report is being examined and the ministry is likely to appoint a
committee for working out the modalities for introduction of internet
in trains, a senior railway ministry official said."
