The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) will penalise the contractor for not completing the installation of around 1,500 CCTV cameras across the city. Despite giving an extension of four months, the contractor has completed around 70% of the total work.

The Deadline

Initially, when the work order was given, the deadline for completion of the work was November 22, 2022. However, the work could not be completed on time and the civic body extended the deadline until March 31, this year.

CCTVs installed

Around 63 cameras have become operational and they are connected with the command and control at civic headquarters in Belapur. The civic chief inspected the command room and checked the quality of the live footage.

Apart from this, 9 thermal cameras are being installed in view of marine security keeping in view the security of coastal areas.
