The garbage disposal violators and those who set it on fire will now be under CCTV vigil. The civic body is ready with its integrated command and control centre (ICCC) under the Smart City mission wherein cameras installed under the safe city project will be connected.
The ICCC is expected to be inaugurated in the coming week.
The officials said they would keep a tab on solid waste violators and those who harm the public property, like damage and encroachment of roads. “Over 300 new cameras are to be installed and these will also be connected with the ICCC,” the officials added.
Under the Smart City mission, there is a provision to connect 1,742 cameras, out of which around 1,400 are already installed and will be attached with the ICCC. In addition to the 30 vehicle-mounted cameras, 600 infrared illuminators will also be part of the project, the cost of which is Rs 35.96 crore.
There had been complaints of people and MC employees burning garbage instead of disposing it of. In the absence of any proof, no action could be taken, though there is a provision to impose a penalty for solid waste violation.
But with CCTV surveillance, officials will be in a position to take action. Apart from this, garbage disposal in Buddha Nullah and Sidhwan Canal can also be checked.
Screens have been installed inside the ICCC building and after inauguration, monitoring will start.
Additional commissioner Aaditya Dachalwal said, “The project is ready and we will start it shortly. We will keep an eye on those who burn garbage, throw it anywhere on roadsides or in water bodies. Encroachment attempts will also be checked. More cameras will be installed under this project at a later stage.”
The ICCC has been set up at Zone D office of the MC and in many cities such a project is already working.
