CCTV in 5,000 Delhi buses in first phase

In an effort to enhance safety in city buses, particularly for women commuters, the Aam Aadmi Party government has decided to install CCTV cameras in 5,000 buses in the first phase, besides deploying trained marshals. The government will make a provision of around Rs 100 crore in the upcoming Budget to execute the flagship project for CCTV installation that will cover DTC and orange-coloured Cluster buses.

At present, there are around 4,700 DTC buses out of which 924 standard-floor buses (yellow) are all set to be scrapped as they have completed their designed age.

Apart from that, 1,300 cluster buses, run by Delhi Integrated Multi-Model Transit System (DIMTS), are also plying in the capital. According to the government, installation of CCTVs will help to check any attempt of violence against women or eve-teasing in buses. “CCTVs will be installed in all DTC low-floor buses, including air conditioned buses. All the 1300 cluster buses (orange) will also come under this project,” the minister said. Apart from CCTV project, around five thousand trained marshals will also soon be deployed in all buses to put a check on incidents of eve-teasing and violence against women.
