PWD Minister Satyendar Jain

New Delhi,  The much-awaited CCTV project of the Delhi government will soon be put up before the Cabinet, PWD Minister Satyendar Jain said on Thursday in the Delhi Assembly.

“The project has been delayed by more than a year. We will soon approve it in a Cabinet meeting,” Jain said in the House.

Installation of CCTV cameras in Delhi was one of the key points in the manifesto of the Aam Aadmi Party to improve the security and safety of the citizens.

In the reply, Jain also informed that the PWD had finalised the rate contract for different types of cameras and also the items for networking to the control room, installation and maintenance for three years.

The work was scheduled to be awarded by the PWD in October 2017.

Under the plan, every constituency in Delhi will have 2,000 cameras.
