Mumbai, Nov 30: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said the Mumbai city surveillance project of installation of over 6,000 CCTVs would be completed before the 26/11 terror attacks anniversary next year.
He was speaking after launching the first phase of the project covering south Mumbai – from Colaba to Worli – where 1,381 cameras have been installed, he said the CCTV network would boost crime prevention, early response, detection, prosecution and conviction.
After all three phases of the project are completed, there will be 100 per cent command and control system integration. With the data integration, we will be able to evolve a comprehensive strategy to tackle crime,” he said.
The entire project to install CCTVs at all the crucial places in the city is expected to cost around Rs 949 crore. Fadnavis said challenges regarding security measures are enormous and it is impossible to tackle them only with manpower.
