In a bid to make Mumbai a smart city, 500 wi-fi hotspots in Mumbai have been activated, announced by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis on twitter.

The state government hopes to make 1,200 hotspots live by May 1st. With this initiative, Mumbai has become India’s largest public wi-fi service city and one of the largest in the world.

“Mumbai will be a city of its kind where all major areas of the city will have public wi-fi. Based on this wi-fi, we would also offer all the citizen centric services to people. So roaming in Mumbai will be an experience in itself,” said Fadnavis while addressing media in Mumbai.

The state government plans to deploy smart transportation and smart parking systems starting with the help of wi-fi hotspots providing real-time updates on the traffic, routes and the capacity of the modes of transportations.

After Mumbai, the government is also planning to activate wi-fi hotspots in Pune, Nashik and Nagpur in their quest to become a smart city.
