Indian Railways has finally received the clearance from ISRO for using the satellite for the purpose, so surfing the net in train, without a data card will soon become a reality. It will be for the first time that internet will be operational in moving trains through satellite. Though it was proposed by railways two years back but it couldn’t get the ISRO clearance.
