The work related to the installation of CCTV cameras in the sub-city will begin soon as the Delhi government has started dispatching it. Though, the work in other constituencies has started under the supervision of MLAs.
These cameras are being installed following a survey conducted recently besides suggestions and feedback given by residents' welfare associations and management (RWAs) of various societies across the area.
The installation work began from Kakrola area a few days back and it will soon commence in Dwarka too.
Talking to City Spidey, MLA of Matiala Assembly area Gulab Singh Yadav said, “To begin with, we have started installing these cameras in the colonies that are located in the outskirts of Dwarka. Within three to four days, we will begin the installation work in the sub-city, mainly markets and open areas like internal roads, back and service lanes, etc.”
“A total of 300 cameras have been given to each ward that comes under the assembly area. We are focusing to install these CCTV cameras at such spots and places which do not come under surveillance. This will help the local police to curb criminal activities, making the area safe for all,” Yadav added.
He further said that surveys and meetings are being done with RWAs to install these cameras at specific spots located near various societies across the city.
According to the information received from the MLA office, 2000 cameras have to be installed in each constituent assembly.
In this regard, MLA of Palam Assembly area Bhavna Gaur said, “The installation work will begin once the survey gets completed.”
