In a step towards making Jalandhar a Smart City, work on first of its kind Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) in Punjab has been started. Jalandhar MP Chaudhary Santokh Singh on Saturday laid the foundation stone of the project at local police lines.
The project would come up at a cost of Rs 116 crore under which 1250 CCTV cameras would be installed at 250 locations in the city.
The MP said that Jalandhar was one of the three cities of Punjab selected under the Smart Cities Mission of Ministry of housing and urban development, adding that other two cities were Amritsar and Ludhiana. “Jalandhar has become the first city in the region to start work on this project. The overall objectives of ICCC project are to enhance governance system and to act as a single source of information for all civic functions,” he said.
The MP said that ICCC would act as Jalandhar City’s emergency and disaster management platform as well. He said that it would be integrated with various IT systems of different government departments with an objective of enhancing safety, security and providing better public services in the city.
Chaudhary Santokh Singh also said that ICCC would also provide smart governance applications, such as portal and mobile application, city surveillance system, utility management system, intelligent transport management system, data centre and integrated building management system and smart network.
“The centre would also communicate with other cities’ systems such as early warning systems, emergency response forces, citizen engagement platform and others. The work on this ambitious project would be completed within six months,” he added.
