SSTL, a joint-venture between Russia's Sistema JSFC and India's Shyam Group, will provide the access through its Indian brand MTS. It will set up kiosks at the venue for attendees to collect special coupons for internet access.

"The attendees including authors are social media celebrities, who are always on the look-out to engage with a larger audience including their fans. Our aim is to provide all attendees with a world class browsing experience through the MTS 3GPLUS telecom network," the company's CEO for Rajasthan Ashish Bhatia said.

Commenced in 2006, the Jaipur Literature Festival has grown into one of Asia's largest such events.

"This year the Jaipur Literature Festival promises to be bigger and better than the previous years," the company said.
