Mumbai to get 5000 CCTV to monitor traffic and criminals

Mumbai will have 5000 closed circuit TV cameras to watch 480 traffic junctions in addition to the government establishments, railway stations, and transportation depots.

The network will help the city law enforcement to keep track of the traffic offenders and suspected terrorism activities. The proposed project will include motion detection, bio-matrix, optical character detection and recognition, night vision, thermal imaging along with pan, tilt, and zoom capabilities.

The project is supposed to fund itself from the revenue generated from the traffic tickets.

They might even catch the Bollywood stars on the go.
