Free WiFi facility at Kumbakonam railway station

The railways has extended free WiFi facility for passengers and public accessing the Kumbakonam railway station. The facility, that was tested for about a week, was launched on Monday.

The railways had decided two years back to extend the facility to stations and junctions that were categorised as “A Grade’’ with a commendable revenue. As per that decision, the Thanjavur District Train Travellers’ Welfare Association had petitioned the railways for the facility and reiterated their demand through the Mayiladuthurai MP R.K. Bharathi Mohan again some time back.

Every day around 38 trains pass through the Kumbakonam station that witnesses a footfall of at least 5,000 people daily. The station is an important spot in the pilgrim and trade map of the State and the new facility would be a boon to the passengers and public.

We wholeheartedly thank the railways and those who made it happen, said members of the association.
