Over 1,900 CCTV cameras to be installed across Gurugram

As many as 1,926 closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras will be installed at 358 places across the Millennium City to strengthen the surveillance system.

The decision was taken during the first meeting of the Executive Committee of the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA), held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, in Gurugram on Friday.

The laying down of a fibre network has been initiated and the cameras will be integrated through a command and control centre.

The video feed of the CCTVs will be sent to all government departments, police stations, schools and institutions.

Private CCTVs

About 60,000 CCTV cameras already installed at shopping malls and other private institutions will also be linked with this network and controlled by the GMDA, said the government.

The CCTV network will also help in traffic management, it added. E-challans will be automatically issued to those violating traffic rules under the project.

The first phase of the Rs. 65- crore project will be completed in nine months.

The video feed will be stored for seven days locally and for 30 days at the integrated command and control centre. The GMDA has divided the area under Gurugram Manesar Urban Complex Development Plan into six parts for the project.

The proposal to rename Leisure Valley Park, Sector-29 as Maharana Pratap Swarna Jayanti Park was also approved.
