Rly to offer social networking


As part of the drive to offer new infotainment solutions it is  exploring the possibility of providing access to a passenger's e-mail or twitter account, shopping channel or an auction site through a touch-screen based computer unit. The Research Design and Standards Organisation is understood to be working on the technology, the idea of which was originally floated by an expert committee of the Railways.

“The idea has been mooted by the Passenger Amenities Committee. Offering access to the internet for social networking sites was one of them and the Railway Ministry is studying it,” said a source. The service could be available in flagship trains like the Shatabdi Express with shorter daytime journey.
