CCTV cameras in all DTC buses by May next year: Delhi govt to HC
NEW DELHI: The AAP government on Tuesday told the Delhi High Court that CCTV cameras are likely to be installed in all DTC buses in the national capital by May next year. The submission was made before a bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao during the hearing of a PIL by a lawyer. The petitioner has sought installation of CCTV cameras, and other safety and security features in all buses of the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC).
The court listed the matter for hearing in January after the advocate appearing for petitioner Manish Kumar opposed the Delhi government's submission and said earlier the DTC had claimed there were marshals present in some of its buses, but this was not correct.
The counsel sought time to file a response to the status report filed by the Delhi government. The court listed the matter for hearing in January. The Delhi government told the bench that tenders have been floated for installation of CCTV cameras in all the buses and the work would be finalised soon.
