THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The plan to install CCTV cameras in railway stations as well as trains as part of Nirbhaya Scheme, for the safety of women has failed.

The main project announced by Finance Minister Arun Jaitely in the last budget is now in a crisis due to insufficiency of necessary funds. An amount of Rs 500 crore was granted in April following the direction of the Prime Minister to complete the project in the current year itself. The implementation of the project had already started. Cameras have been installed in 436 stations and the project was initialised in about 547 stations till now. The union finance ministry had informed that they cannot sanction such an amount from the Nirbhaya fund.

The plan was to install cameras in 58276 railway coaches in 5721 busy railway stations. The railway had estimated Rs 3500 crore for it. The railway is currently planning to cut short the project as the centre refused to sanction the amount. An amount of Rs 2500 crore will be taken as loan.  CCTVs will be installed in 42000 railway coaches in 5000 stations. Rail Finance Corporation has been entrusted to arrange the loan.

CCTV cameras have been installed in 19 stations of the state so far. 12 cameras in Thiruvananthapuram division and seven in Palakkad division and steps have been taken to install cameras in ten more stations. In the new situation, it is not sure in how many places it will be completed. There are 103 railway stations in the state. A decision has not been taken so far on the directive to install cameras in trains operating services in the state.
