New Delhi: In an effort to step up vigil to avoid untoward incident such as the recent bomb blast at Delhi High Court, hi-tech CCTV cameras with improved technical support to capture clear pictures and equipped with alarm system, would be installed at railway stations in Delhi.

The hi-tech CCTV cameras would not only keep an eye on movement of people at the railway stations, but would also inform control room if its finds any unidentified packet or luggage lying more than 20 minutes at the same place.

This would help in alarming the security staff to reach at the spot in time and take preventive action.
The cameras would be installed at three key railways station in the capital - New Delhi, Old Delhi and Hazrat Nizamuddin railway stations.

It is to be noted that the integrated security system was to be installed before the Commonwealth Games, but due to lack of funds, the project is still pending.

In total, 160 such cameras would be installed at New Delhi railway station, out which 120 would be with zoom features and 40 would be rotating ones.

“These hi-tech CCTV cameras can monitor and record clear pictures up to the distance of nearly 750 metres,” said an official associated with the project.

The cameras have been imported from Singapore and would start functioning at New Delhi railway station by November, the official informed.
