Agra: For strict enforcement of Covid-19 norms, the Agra smart city cameras will be updated to identify a group of people not wearing masks at public places. These cameras will send an alert to the police station of the area through the Agra smart city’s Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC). Those found not wearing masks will be issued a spot challan of Rs 500.
At present, 635 smart cameras are installed at 125 locations mainly in the marketplaces and busy crossings of the city. These are all connected to the ICCC at Agra municipal corporation head office.
Alok Kumar, additional chief secretary of the state government, who is the nodal officer for Agra district, visited the ICCC on Sunday and chaired a meeting with the officials. He ordered the use of cameras installed under the Agra smart city project.
Vice-president of Agra smart city project Anand Menon said, “We are updating the software of the smart cameras. A feature to automatically identify people not wearing face masks will be incorporated soon. According to the plan, an alert will be sent to the local police station through ICCC after the cameras spot people not wearing masks at the public places. Maintenance of social distancing protocol is already being monitored through the ICCC.”
Meanwhile, district magistrate Prabhu N Singh has constituted special teams for strict enforcement of social distancing protocol and penalising those not wearing a face mask. The teams have been directed to operate daily from noon to 2 pm.
