The government has proposed to bring legalization in this regard in the state assembly. Sarma while talking to media persons on Wednesday said, “It will be compulsory for the new flats in Guwahati to install CCTV. Working parents who stay away keep their child at home will have to install CCTV. Home where elderly parents stay alone and children stay outside the country will have to install CCTV.”
He said, “These CCTV will have to have 30 days’ storage. Assam police will complete installing CCTV in the city by October this year. In no time through public private partnership we can have 50,000 CCTV installed. Police will serve proper legal notice if there is any crime to the house owner before accessing their CCTVs. There will be no infringement of private life.”
The government has decided to provide jobs to 300 family members of those police personnel who lost their life in dealing with insurgency on January 25.
