There is a saying: who get the technology, who get the world.
BBC News: The Delhi Police proposed to install 6630 cctv cameras in different areas of the national capital, but it was rejected by Delhi High Court because of the cost.
A division bench of Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva said it would not give its "stamp of approval" to the project and said "the cost is a bit pricey".
"We won't give our stamp of approval to the project. Rs.404 crore for the CCTV cameras seems to be on the upper side, to say the least," the bench remarked.
The bench, which posted the matter for further consideration for July 29, said Delhi Police were "more interested" in putting up CCTV cameras "as it involves money".
The court's observation came after advocate Meera Bhatia said Delhi Police in an affidavit said a survey was carried out by Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Ltd. (BECIL) in all the 44 areas to identify spots where CCTV cameras could be installed.
BECIL conducted a field study in consultation with the respective joint commissioners of police and other concerned officers in the vulnerable areas where crimes against women were on the rise.
It projected a tentative cost of Rs.404.32 crore for all accessories, cameras and apparatuses etc. required for the installation of 6,630 CCTV systems.
All in all, people all know that it's necessary to install cameras in the streets, but the cost is a little bit high, beyond the financial budget. For now, it was rejected, but in future, who knows? Maybe the cctv camera will exist at every corner of Delhi.
