“The main purpose of these high resolution cameras is to streamline traffic in Jammu and check violations on roads,” General Manager, Jammu Smart City Limited (JSCL), Ashish Anand informed Rising Kashmir, while adding, “However, the live footage and pictures provided by these cameras will also help in keeping a close watch on unlawful and criminal activities”.
The testing of the cameras is under process and it is being ascertained whether these cameras are providing information as is being required, the General Manager said, adding that all the cameras will be activated within a month after thorough testing.
These 680 high resolution cameras will keep round the clock watch in both Jammu City as also on the National Highway i.e within the limits of Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC).
The Government has identified 40 junctions across in Jammu where these high-tech cameras of different resolutions have been installed.
