According to Divisional Railway Manager Rajkumar Lal, the security system is being put in place at a cost of Rs. 2.5 crore and more than 80 per cent of the work has been completed.
34 cameras will be positioned at vantage points, of which 20 will be the PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) Cameras that will give a full-field view of the area under surveillance. The remaining 14 cameras will be stationary, focusing on sensitive areas such as platforms, entry and exit points, foot over-bridges and waiting halls, among others. These cameras will provide high resolution displays, recording and video playback facilities.
