Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Virbhadra Singh today launched the Reliance Jio Wi-Fi facility in eighteen government colleges of the State. The Reliance Jio will provide free Wi-Fi facility in as many as 30 government colleges of the State to make college campus digital. In the next phase 12 more colleges would be connected with Wi-Fi facility by Jio.
After launching the facility, Chief Minster said that Himachal had become one of the first States in the Country to connect its district headquarters with high speed Wi-Fi facilities provided by Jio. He said that development was incomplete if it did not touch the educational institutions, which he hoped, would provide more learning facilities to the students besides helping them in research and reference works.
He urged the students to use the facility wisely and for the learning purpose only. “Himachal is committed to transform the digital landscape and so to create world-class digital infrastructure in all its schools and colleges in times to come”, said the Chief Minster, adding that empowering the students with the new technology and infrastructure would help in developing the Nation as well.
The colleges connected with internet facility in first phase are Government College Solan, Hamirpur, Sujanpur, Nalagarh, Rampur Bushahr, Government Degree College Sanjauli, Theog, Shahpur, Nagrota Bagwaan, Palampur, Ghumarwin, Chaura Maidan (Kotshera), Nahan, MLSM College Sundernagar and Haripur besides, Shivalik Nursing Institute, Kamlanagar and RKMV Shimla.
