In keeping with the budgetary proposal to step up security measures in Railways, Hon’ble Minister for Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu inaugurated the fitment of CCTV in Train No.s 12497/12498 Shan-e-Punjab Express today (08.04.2016) through video-conferencing from Rail Bhawan premises, New Delhi. Senior Railway officers present at Rail Bhawan include Shri Hemant Kumar, Member Mechanical Railway Board, Shri Mohd. Jamshed, Member Traffic Railway Board, Shri V.K.Gupta, Member Engineering, Railway Board and Shri A.K.Puthia General Manager, Northern Railway. At the ceremonial commencement of the function at Amritsar railway station, Shri Anil Joshi, Hon’ble Minister for Local Govt., Medical Education & Research, Govt. of Punjab, Shri Bakshi Ram Arora, Hon’ble Mayor, Amritsar, were the distinguished guests on the occasion. Shri Anuj Prakash Divisional Railway Manager, Northern Railway, Firozpur and senior Railway officers were present on the occasion.
Stepping up of security measures for the travelling public is one of the high-priority areas of the Indian Railways. From round-the-clock accessible Helplines, fine-tuning of measures of response to emergencies to installation of technology-enabled modes of multi-screening, surveillance and security systems, the Railway is increasingly adopting all-out measures to contain and mitigate crimes on its premises. The installation of surveillance systems was done through Ms/ A-Paul Instrument Company at an approximate cost of Rs. 36.71 lacs for 02 nos. Sleeper coaches, 03 AC Chair Car & 16 nos. non-AC Chair Car coaches of the 12497 Shane-e-Punjab Express. Without compromising on privacy of rail passengers, the CCTV system includes 4 to 6 Cameras per coach strategically located so that entire area of coaches can be covered. The other features DVR (Digital video recorder) for recording and with HDD & SD Card, Software, Display Monitor for observations, interconnecting cables, 12 V power supply and accessories. The System shall facilitate facial recognition for unambiguous identification of the target parson by giving resolution images, enable facial recognition in low light condition especially in aisle area during night time. The system has been made suitable for mobile application for use on railway coaches and should be able to withstand vibrations and shocks that are encountered. The storage capacity is for one month on a removable media for retrieving data on intermediate stations by authorized person viz. RPF. The Recorder has safety storage/emergency recording function, i.e. in case of HDD failure the data should store on additional storage device (SD Card) with in-built diagnostics to log internal function or hardware failure.
With further proliferation of surveillance cameras on coaches, besides crimes against women, other miscreant activities, theft etc. are also anticipated to get significantly reduced.
