​Uploading selfies at Taj Mahal would never be a trouble again

With the scorching heat having subsided for a while, you can drive this weekend to the Taj Mahal. What’s the bonus? Besides, watching with amusement one of the seven wonders of the world, you can now directly upload your selfies or snaps right from the Taj.

Union Minister for Communications Ravi Shankar Prasad has launched half-an-hour free Wi-Fi Interet facility in the Taj Mahal complex.

As per a news report by IANS, Anyone wishing to remain logged in for more than half-an-hour can do so by paying R 30 an hour.

BSNL has made special arrangements to introduce the facility with support from Quadgen, a Bengaluru-based company.

Future plans include introducing Wi-Fi at the Fathepur Sikri complex. The Agra Cantt railway station is already Wi-Fi enabled.

Taj Mahal remains India's major tourist draw, visited by six million in 2014.

While tourism industry leaders have generally welcomed the new facility, some conservationists feel the Internet would prevent many tourists from appreciating the beauty of the monument, and soaking in the romance of the ambience of the surroundings.
