This is part of a scheme to provide access to the internet at 4,791 stations across the country.
Tata Trusts has been told to expedite the project, which is to be completed under the 100-day programme of the Narendra Modi government (NDA-II) at the Centre.
A high-level review meeting at the Railway Board advised Tata Trusts to give a timeline for commissioning the facility before the deadline.
Google is likely to provide the solution for Authorising, Authenticating and Accounting of customers accessing the Wi-Fi, which will initially be of 1 Mbps speed.
Principal Chief Signal and Telecommunications Engineer S.K. Goyal said free Wi-Fi at all stations with train stoppages would be available by September first week.
Of the 500-odd such stations in the Southern Railway, the facility was already available in 282 stations. The respective railway zones would provide space and cable for installing the facility.
