After a wait of almost a year, the north western railways (NWR) has started the installation of integrated security system at its four major railway stations including – Jaipur, Ajmer, Jodhpur and Bikaner. Authorities say that by September end the system would be operational in Jaipur and by December all the four railway stations would be interconnected through the system.
Under the system, these railway stations would have the security equipment of international standards. The four aspects of the integrated security system would include closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, bomb disposal squad, baggage screening and access check within the railway station premises and parking lots. All these things would be on internet and would be monitored by the senior authorities in case of sudden rush at the railway station, suspicious activities and other law and order problems.
Authorities said that all these four stations were tagged as ‘top priority’ since the footfall at these places is quite high.
