Parents of the students studying in Delhi government schools to get access to real-time CCTV footage of classrooms

Parents whose children study in Delhi government schools will have real-time access to CCTV footage of classrooms to ensure transparency and safety of children, it was announced on Wednesday.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reviewed the progress of installation of closed-circuit televisions in each class in all government schools, a statement said.

"Each parent will be given access on a real-time basis on his phone as to see his/her child studying in class. This will make the whole system transparent and accountable. It will ensure the safety of kids," Kejriwal tweeted.

The process of installation of CCTVs in schools is expected to start within three months.

Once the project is implemented, the Education Minister, Education Department's Secretary and Director will have the rights to view any classroom of any government school through a mobile application at any point in time.

There would be an auto complaint system to check non-functioning of these CCTVs.

The auto system would itself lodge a complaint which will then go to the system integrator who would then ensure correct functioning of the CCTV concerned.
