Ministry Of Indian Railways posted the following article in "Local Circles" group:
Addressing WiFi Misuse at Stations:
Thanks to the circle members for raising this important matter. Based on your discussion, below are the key solutions that we have compiled. Kindly review them and share any additional and specific solution inputs you may have. We look forward to your inputs!
Addressing misuse of WiFi
at railway stations
1. Proper firewalls should be used by station WiFi teams
2. Software like OpenDNS could be used to prevent access to unauthorised sites
3. The sites flagged by the Ministry of Information & Broadcast should be blocked on the railway station WiFi s
4. Downloading should not be allowed through station WiFi
5. Like stations in many European countries, WiFi should be given free for only the first 15 minutes and then on a chargeable basis
6. A registration process to use the internet, like of the airports should be initiated
7. The PNR number of the passenger should act as the login ID if he wants to access the WiFi. This will make his realise that whatever he surfs could be traced back to him
8. As soon as someone opens a non-allowed site, the browser should get locked with a full page notice about the infringement showing up
9. Such phones/phone numbers should also be banned from using station WiFi for the next 6 months
10. Access should be restricted to one connection per PNR on the days of travel only.

Once again, elitism at it's best. Unreserved passenger WiFi kaise chala sekta hai, wo to kewal nark me travel karne k liye entitled hai.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
