PM-WANI-Prime Minister Wi-Fi Access Network Interface

RailTel, a micro Ratna PSU, launched the Prime Minister Wi-Fi Access Network Interface (PM-WANI) scheme on 9th May 2022 by providing access to its Public Wi-Fi services across 100 train stations in 22 states. 

Key Points:

  • PM-WANI is a Department of Telecom initiative to connect all silo Wi-Fi networks for simplicity of use and to increase broadband adoption among the public. 
  • This public-friendly service was virtually launched by RailTel chairman and managing director Puneet Chawla. 
  • Android users can connect to this Wi-Fi network by downloading the ‘Wi-DOT’ app from the Google Play Store. 
  • The software was created in close collaboration with C-DOT. This means of connecting to Wi-Fi via the ‘mobile app’ would be in addition to the present technique of connecting to Wi-Fi at these stations by selecting the RailWire Service Set Identifier.
