Mumbai to Get 6,000 CCTV Cameras



MUMBAI:  Maharashtra government today signed an MoU worth Rs. 949 crore with engineering and construction major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for setting up CCTV based surveillance in the city.

As per the MoU signed by the company and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, 6,000 CCTVs will be installed across the metropolis and suburbs by September 2016.

The project was first proposed during the NCP-Congress regime post 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai and has been delayed since then.

It could not move ahead despite calling for bids four times as tenders did not receive response from companies.

The BJP-led government after coming to power last year formed a high power committee to push the project and contract for the same was signed today on the occasion of completion of 100 days of the state government. More info
