Seeking to boost monitoring facilities in its schools, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation has installed surveillance cameras in another 40 schools, the civic body said today.
"The corporation is committed to provide foolproof security to the students. The monitoring mechanism will also keep an eye on security of all children and issues related to qualitative delivery of education," South Delhi Mayor Shyam Sharma said.
Earlier this year, the SDMC had initiated a plan to install CCTV cameras in all municipal schools run by it with a budgetary provision of Rs five crore in a phased manner.
"The cameras installed in the schools will be monitored. Such monitoring will commence in another 40 schools where the cameras are installed," he said.
The Mayor said to ensure proper monitoring every zone will form a team in their respective areas.
"The SDMC's control room will also enable officers sitting in the Civic Centre to monitor the security of students in schools," he said.
