→Nagpur Municipal Corporation’s step to make Nagpur a smart city is no longer a far-fetched dream. The NMC has installed CCTV cameras and Automatic Number Plate Reader (ANPR) from the route – Japanese Garden signal to Orange City Hospital Square.

ANPR system would help to track people who violate traffic rules. 4,000 CCTV cameras will monitor Nagpur and ensure crime offenders are punished.

All the signals throughout the route of six kilometers (from Japanese Garden to Orange City Hospital) are under CCTV surveillance. Cameras on these paths would capture each and every movement. They also equipped with high speed Wi-Fi network.

The task of developing Nagpur as a smart city has been undertaken by infrastructure giant Larsen and Turbo (L&T). Also, Maharashtra Government has alloted Rs 500 crores for the same project.

L&T firm has installed the CCTVs, which have been connected through Wi-Fi networks on 14 locations namely Japanese Garden, Ladies Club, High Court, Coffee House Square (Dharampeth), Ahinsa Square, Law College Square, Bajaj Nagar, Laxmi Nagar, Shankar Nagar, Laxmi Bhavan Square, Aath Rasta Square, Jerryl Lawns, Tatya Tope Hall Square and Orange City Hospital Square.

→All the CCTV cameras would be connected to Sitabuldi Police Station’s control room.
