Govt mulls installation of more CCTVs on Srinagar streets

SRINAGAR: Installation of CCTV cameras on Srinagar roads is under the consideration of the government for “safety and regulation of traffic rules”.
An official of Housing and Urban Development said that installation of CCTV cameras has been suggested by the Housing and Urban Development Department to the government for “safety and security” in Srinagar.
“The CCTV cameras and illuminating streets and roads through street lighting system fitted with sensors should be incorporated in the smart city proposal for ensuring safety and security in the city,” the official quoting a document.
The official as per the document, there was “inadequate” availability of CCTV surveillance in the entire city.
“CCTV surveillance will prove as smart eye to the city. Well illuminated street lighting system will also ensure safety and security,” the official said.
In the document, the official said that safety would be ensured by citywide network of the “public eye”, an initiative the government suggests was combining community policing with technology, installation of CCTV at strategic locations, and developing e-portals for “on the spot incident reporting”.
The CCTV cameras according to document would also ensure traffic regulation.
The Jammu and Kashmir has recorded 100 percent increase in traffic challans since 2010. 1,800 traffic violators being fined on an average daily in the state.
