Beaches in Goa will soon be WiFi-enabled

Panaji: Beaches in Goa will soon be WiFi-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 here.
"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 abroad. 
Parulekar said under the scheme, CCTVs would be installed along the beaches for strengthening security.
