The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) plans to provide WiFi facility aboard its trains as well as in stations, union Minister of State for Urban Development Babul Supriyo said on Wednesday.

"The DMRC has informed the ministry that it has planned to provide WiFi facility in metro trains," he said in reply to a question in the Lok Sabha.

"Stations on the new line like Mukundpur-Shiv Vihar line and Janakpuri West-Kalindi Kunj line... will also be covered under this facility," he said.
