Goa Beaches To Be Wi-Fi Enabled: Minister


Panaji: Beaches in Goa will soon be Wi-Fi enabled and also covered by closed-circuit television, Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar said on Friday.

The state, known for its beach and nightlife, had tapped into a central government scheme to ensure Internet service along the coastal hotspots, he told reporters on the sidelines of a media event in Panaji.

“All the beaches in Goa will be covered by WI-FI thanks to tourism ministry’s Swadesh Darshan scheme under which the Goa government has got Rs.100 crore,” Parulekar said.

Goa attracts nearly 40 lakh tourists every year, including half a million from outside India. Parulekar said under the scheme, CCTVs would be installed along the beaches for strengthening security.
