Delhi Cabinet Approves Installation Of CCTV Cameras in Schools.

The Delhi Cabinet on September 17, 2018, passed the Education Department’s proposal for installation of CCTV cameras in government schools ensuring the safety of students.

"The department's proposal was to seek administrative approval and expenditure sanction for the project of supply, installation, testing, commissioning and comprehensive annual maintenance contract of CCTV cameras in government schools," an official statement said.

In May 2018, the Expenditure Finance Committee had approved the Rs. 597 crore project to install 1.46 lakh cameras in schools, including inside classrooms. The cameras will cover classrooms, corridors, laboratories, libraries, vacant rooms, parking lots and areas outside washrooms.

Further, It was also decided that an online access to parents be provided to be able to see their children's classrooms.

Moreover, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had directed the formation of a core committee in December last year which will be responsible for preparing a time-bound plan and to oversee the function of installation of CCTV cameras in government schools.

The decision to pass the Education Department’s proposal was taken after a spate of attacks on children inside institutes across the NCR in the past year.
