There are 26 monitors at the CCR that would be manned by smart city cell personnel. The project cost for the installation of the CCTV cameras along with the CCR is Rs 164 crore.
Under this project, 800 CCTV cameras would be set up in various parts of the city and over 400 gadgets have already been set up. The remaining ones would be set up by March next year. A giant screen and 25 small screens have been set up in the control room.
A team of eight operators will man the control room 24X7. The CCTV cameras will send alert signals automatically if there are traffic jams, water logging, the gathering of people etc.
