Along with passenger convenience, this move will also boost security by allowing the police to track the live CCTV feed from every train compartment. 

In a statement, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said, “It is a more complicated technology subject. Giving Wi-Fi in running trains requires investment… Towers need to be put and there has to be equipment inside trains. In this, we might have to bring in foreign technology and investors.”
