Junagadh District police stations - CCTV cameras in Saurashtra

Rajkot District police have installed high resolution closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, which also have night vision capability, in all the police stations under their jurisdiction to keep an eye on the officials and also the accused in the lock ups.

As per Latest Interviews who is Superintendent of police Premvir SinghRajkot rural said that, “The CCTV cameras have been installed in all the 21 police stations in the district.

"There are three CCTV cameras in a police station -- at the offices of police inspector (PI) and police station officer (PSO) and the lock-up."

"This will facilitate remote base monitoring system in each police station helping even the PSO and the PI to keep an eye on the accused."

The CCTV cameras at the police stations are connected to the DSP's office.

These will help the SP to monitor the happenings in each police station in the district.

"The basic idea is not distrust of the police officials, but to ensure they behave nicely with complainants and maintain discipline always. Past experiences suggest that this has helped a lot in improving discipline among the officials.''

"There have been many complaints about police officers' reluctance to lodge first information reports (FIRs) and also allegations of misbehavior against them. The CCTV cameras to a great extent will solve this issue and will be helpful to the police officers as well as the common people."

"We will cover all the police stations in Jamnagar and Surendranagar in a phased manner. The project is being implemented on public-private partnership (PPP) model.''

"CCTV cameras will be also installed on main entry points, major traffic junctions, vital installations, markets and crowded places in the towns of Rajkot, Jamnagar and Surendranagar districts.''

As of now, the CCTV cameras are installed at the police stations in Bhavnagar, Junagadh and Porbandar districts in Junagadh Police range.

Junagadh City in Progress - 2nd ultra mega power plant to come up

The Central Electricity Commission has zeroed in on 400 hectares of land at Lodhva village in Kodinar taluka of Junagadh district to set up its 4000-MW second Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) at a cost of Rs 24,000 crore.

The process of site selection for the second UMPP had been going on for the last two years. The state government had suggested various locations in Junagadh, Porbandar and Kutch after which the central government finalized the Lodhava village site.

As per Latest D Jagdeesh Pandian Interviews, who is principal secretary at the state’s Energy and Petrochemical department, said that “We suggested various locations to the CEA. After their technical evaluation, they have chosen Lodhva village site. The location is most convenient for importing coal for the UMPP. Proximity to sea will also help in getting water for coal-washing etc.”

“Generated power will also be transmitted through grids in Gujarat. The state will get 40% of the generated power while the rest will be allocated to other states. The central government is in process of inviting bids for the project. We hope to see considerable progress shortly.”

“The first phase of 1600-MW Mundra UMPP is almost ready and likely to be commissioned shortly.”

Tata Power had bagged the first UMPP project at Mundra in Gujarat.
