Women's safety: Free CCTV outside your house, but with a rider


New Delhi: People who want to get a CCTV camera installed on their house's outside wall under a Delhi government project will have to give an "undertaking" to provide electricity for the functioning of the device.

The government will give subsidy to such people on the power consumed by the CCTV camera, according to legislators of the ruling AAP in the national capital.

As per the government's decision, 1.4 lakh CCTV cameras will be installed across the city under the project, which aims to ensure women safety in Delhi.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators, in their respective constituencies, are distributing a form titled "undertaking" to people who want to install a CCTV camera on the outside wall of their house.

The government will give the subsidy to such residents for the consumption of electricity in functioning of the CCTV camera, AAP MLA Surinder Singh told PTI.

"There will be no burden on residents who want to get a CCTV camera installed on their houses wall as the government will give subsidy for it.

"In the form, residents will have to mention their CA number or electricity meter number apart from their mobile number to avail the subsidy from the government," Singh, the MLA from Delhi Cantt, said.

Two thousand cameras will be installed in each of the 70 assembly constituencies here.
