The Legislative Council was today informed that all major towns, police stations, police posts, national highways and other important roads were proposed to be covered under the Statewide CCTV Surveillance System Project for which a detailed proposal had been submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, which is under consideration.
Replying to a calling attention notice by Vibodh Kumar Gupta in the Upper House, the Minister for Roads and Buildings, Abdul Rehman Veeri, said the police headquarters had awarded the contract for installation of CCTV cameras in various towns of the state, including Rajouri, in 2012 to a Chandigarh-based firm called Tulip Telecom Private Limited at an estimated project cost of Rs 13 crore. However, the firm failed to execute the contract. The minister said consequently, the contract assigned to the aforesaid firm was scrapped.
The minister further said to meet emergent needs and improve policing in the district, CCTV cameras had been installed at four locations, including SD Sabha, City Chowk, Town Hall and near the CID office, in the Rajouri town.
