Rs 226 cr for 7 cities to strengthen surveillance system

Friday, March 17, 2017

New Delhi: Seven major cities, including Delhi and Mumbai, have been given Rs 226 crore for augmenting infrastructure for surveillance, Union Minister Hansraj Ahir said today.

Addressing the fourth Smart Cities Summit here, Minister of State for Home Ahir said the role of data and IT, especially video surveillance in enhancing security, has become vital.

For SMART policing, the Home Ministry has provided Rs 226 crore under the Mega City Policing scheme for seven big cities — Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The minister said with rising public security awareness, increasing government security spending and initiatives such as Smart Cities and surging digitisation, the government sector has become the major player in the surveillance market, both in India and globally.

Ahir said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also laid stress on SMART policing towards making cities safe and secure. SMART stands for Strict and Sensitive, Modern and Mobile, Alert and Accountable, Reliable and Responsive, and Techno-savvy and Trained.
