Indian Capital to become WiFi Zone; Halts for Security Reasons

by on August 8th, 2009

Indian Capital Delhi and the financial hub Mumbai are set to become WiFi Zone soon. Delhi Government has put this ambitious plan of providing Wi-Fi connectivity for high-speed wireless internet services on hold for security reasons. It will be back once the Commonwealth Games gets over.

The move has come after it was felt that wireless fidelity (WiFi) was not a fool-proof mechanism in view of militants using it to carry out attacks in Mumbai and Ahmedabad last year.

On Security matters Delhi Chief secretary Rakesh Mehta told PTI, “We had no option but to drop the plan after MTNL, the service provider for the our project, refused to go ahead in the identified Wi-Fi zones citing security reasons”.

India has emerged as one of the major Software Technology hub, and is only second to United States currently. Thanks to the IT revolution brought by Narayan Murti lead Infosys and Azim Premji lead Wipro Techlogies in nineties and 2000s.
