Govt floats ten­ders to in­stall 1.4 lakh CCTV cam­eras in Delhi

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - METRO -

NEW DELHI: Delhi pub­lic works depart­ment min­is­ter Satyen­dar Jain on Tues­day said that ten­ders have been floated to in­stall 1.4 lakh CCTV cam­eras across the city. He said that in­stal­la­tion of cam­eras would be com­pleted within six months.

“It will take an­other two months to re­lease the work order once the ten­ders are fi­nalised and af­ter that three to four months will be re­quired to com­plete the in­stal­la­tion process. We are ey­ing to com­plete the in­stal­la­tion of 1.4 lakh CCTV cam­eras by April- end,” Jain said.

Ahead of 2015 Delhi As­sem­bly elec­tions, the AAP had promised to in­stall 15 lakh CCTV cam­eras across the na­tional cap­i­tal. Ear­lier in July, Jain had said that 2,000 CCTV cam­eras would be in­stalled in each as­sem­bly con­stituency of Delhi.

“This is the first phase in which 1.4 lakh cam­eras will be in­stalled to keep a vigil in ev­ery area of the city while re­main­ing CCTVS will be set up in next phase soon,” the min­is­ter said.

He said that these CCTV cam- eras would be in­stalled in res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial ar­eas both. Jain clar­i­fied that ad­di­tional cam­eras, if needed, can be in­stalled with the Mem­bers of Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly Lo­cal Area De­vel­op­ment Scheme (MLALAD) fund by the leg­is­la­tors them­selves.

The safety and se­cu­rity of the cam­eras will be the re­spon­si­bil­ity of RWAS while the main­te­nance will be done by the com­pany. Lo­calised con­trol rooms will be set up as rec­om­mended by the RWAS.
