PM WANI Wi-Fi Scheme: The Internet has become an important part of our everyday life- from shopping, working for corporate, banking and more. Today, we do everything which is linked to the internet- from location tracking, SOS help, photography, national and international calls via the internet and more. Due to affordable broadband and internet data service provided by telecom companies, internet access has reached almost every corner of the country and many parts of the world where the telecom service is not reachable. But, unfortunately, there are still many people who cannot afford the internet data plans which are offered by the telecom companies of India. 

For those who cannot afford the existing internet recharge plans offered by the leading telecom service providers, PM Modi launched PM WANI (Prime Minister Wi-Fi Access Network Interface) in December 2020. Through this scheme, internet facilities will be provided to the people at very economical price tags. 

Here is everything you need to know about the new service:
