250 more CCTV cameras to monitor Godavari and trash hotspots

The Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation (NMSCDCL) had recently started the second phase of installing CCTV cameras, with a plan to install 250 cameras. Approximately 125 of these cameras were to be set up at 60 black spots throughout the city where residents often dumped garbage, as a measure to discourage this behaviour. The remaining cameras were intended for low-lying areas around the Godavari River and its tributaries to monitor water levels.

BSNL was laying optical fiber cable (OFC) lines to connect all the CCTV cameras in the city, which would allow them to stream live to two command and control rooms located at the Rajiv Gandhi Bhavan, the headquarters of the NMC, and the police commissionerate. These systems were expected to be operational by the first week of July.

Sumant More, the CEO of NMSCDCL, mentioned that an additional 125 CCTV cameras would be installed at various locations in the low-lying areas of the Godavari and its three tributaries to assist the civic body during the monsoon season. He also indicated that all the additional CCTV cameras were expected to be installed within a month or two. More noted that the smart city officials anticipated all the CCTV cameras would be operational by the first week of July, connected through the OFC lines of BSNL, which had been contracted by the smart city company.

A smart city official added that there were around 60 black spots of garbage across the city where residents dumped household waste openly or along the roads. The civic body aimed to identify and fine these residents. During the first phase, which began in April, the smart city company had installed 800 CCTV cameras at 320 locations across the city, identified by both the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) and police authorities.
