Goa Beaches to Be Wi-Fi-Enabled Minister

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.
