Kalyan and Dom­bivli will get 681 closed- cir­cuit t el evi­sion cam­eras in six months. The move will help curb crimes across the area.

In Jan­uary last year, the Kalyan- Dom­bivli Mu­nic­i­pal C o r p o r at i o n h a d a s ke d a pri­vate agency carry out a de­tailed sur­vey for the CCTV cam­era project.

After t he sur­vey, i t was de­cided to in­stall 681 CCTV cam­eras at 217 spots.

This will cost the KDMC Rs50 crore. The amount also in­cludes the main­te­nance of the cam­eras for five years.

In a meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, the KDMC formed a com­mit­tee to im­ple­ment the project. It will look af­ter the in­stal­la­tion, con­trol­ling and mon­i­tor­ing of the CCTV cam­eras.

The meet­ing was at­tended by KDMC com­mis­sioner E Ravendi­ran, Kalyan deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice ( DCP) San­jay Jad­hav and DCP (traf­fic) Rashmi Karand­hikar.

“After re­ceiv­ing the sur­vey re­ports, we planned to in­stall CCTV cam­eras in 217 spots. A CCTV sur­veil­lance sys­tem will also be set up to mon­i­tor the city,” said Ravendi­ran.

There are no CCTV cam­eras in the two cities. Alarmed by the ris­ing crimes, the po­lice have been urg­ing shop­keep­ers and res­i­den­tial com­plexes to in­stall CCTV cam­eras on their premises.

“This would help the po­lice t o ar rest t he crim­i­nals. I again urge the res­i­dents and the shop­keep­ers of Kalyan and Dom­bivli to in­stall CCTV cam­eras,” said Jad­hav.

The c iv i c b o dy is also plan­ning to make its mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem more e f f i c i e n t by d eve l o p i n g a com­mand cen­tre at the Kalyan DCP of­fice, a data cen­tre and l ive sur­veil­lance at KDMC head­quar­ters as well as the DCP of­fice.
