New Delhi Railway Station, which sees nearly five lakh passengers every day, has become the first station in the country to have more than 100 closed-circuit TV (CCTV) cameras operational under railways’ plan for strengthening security. A total 160 CCTV cameras have been installed at the New Delhi station under the Integrated Security System and these have become operational now, said Anurag Sachan, divisional railway manager of Delhi division here. These CCTV cameras, 98 fixed and 62 rotating ones, are placed at vital points and meant to send alerts on unattended baggage and the surveillance system can be monitored through the control room. There will be a total of 531 cameras to be installed in 10 stations of Delhi division, including New Delhi, Nizamuddin, Old Delhi and Anand Vihar at an estimated cost of `22 crores. “The installation at New Delhi is complete now and it will be completed in other...
stations soon,” the DRM said. Currently New Delhi station handles about five lakh passengers and 275 trains a day. The Integrated Security System comprises mainly CCTV surveillance, access control, personal and baggage screening system, explosive detection and disposal system, vehicle scanner and systems integration. Mr Sachan said there is a constant endeavour to improve passenger amenities and safety measures at rail premises. Acknowledging the shortage of water, the DRM said, “We reviewed the situation. The problem is big as there is a requirement of 1.25-crore litres of water per day in New Delhi station alone. Steps are being taken to address the problem.”
