Haryana to install one lakh CCTV cameras along national highways

The Haryana government will install one lakh CCTV cameras along national highways in the state, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said. Work on installation of the CCTV cameras will begin this year, officials said.
The closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras will be installed along the national highways soon, Khattar said, while interacting with media persons after inaugurating and laying foundation stones of development works worth Rs 107 crore for Sirsa and Fatehabad districts.
Some of the busiest national highways, like NH-1 (Delhi-Ambala), NH-8 (Delhi-Jaipur), NH-2 (Delhi-Agra), NH-10 (Delhi-Hisar), and others pass through Haryana. The state surrounds national capital Delhi from three sides and all highways, linking north Indian states Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, pass through it. The state attracts a lot of heavy traffic of trucks with industrial hubs like Gurugram, Manesar, Bawal, Dharuhera, Kundli, Panipat, Rohtak and others being located in the national capital region (NCR)
