By July 2024, the Pune railway station will have up to 120 new CCTV cameras installed, boosting the security of the station.
According to a senior railway official, the Railway Board has been consulted. They anticipate receiving approval shortly, after which tenders will be released. They anticipate having the new cameras installed in six to seven months.
61 cameras were installed at the Pune station starting in 2013, according to a senior Railway Protection Force (RPF) officer stationed there. The cameras’ operational lifespan has come to an end, so they can no longer produce clear images and video.
The old cameras will be replaced by the 120 new cameras.
The issue of replacing the outdated CCTV cameras at the station has been around for a while, according to a senior member of the Railway Pravasi Group.
