New Delhi, Sept. 9 (ANI): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led government would soon bring the “Big Boss” moment for parents whose children study in government schools across Delhi.
CCTV cameras will soon be installed in all classrooms of government schools of the national capital.
The initial control of monitoring these cameras will be with the government authorities, including the Department of Education.
The later plan is to provide a secure access for parents to these cameras through a mobile application so that they can keep an eye on their children in the classroom and on the school premises.
The pilot project of CCTV cameras has been initiated in three schools of Delhi. The state government schools at Mori Gate and East Vinod Nagar have started using the CCTV cameras, which was inspected by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
Sarvodaya School students said the CCTV cameras would prevent the teachers from coming late or being absent. They also said it would help to maintain classroom discipline. Some students, however, said these cameras might affect their lighter moments.
“The government has plans to install CCTV cameras in all the classrooms in government schools across Delhi which will boost the spirit of education and add discipline in the classroom,” Sisodia told ANI at the East Vinod Nagar school.
“The complaint against teachers of coming late or such will also be factually made on record with the help of these cameras,” he added.
As per the government, there are 700 school buildings functional in the capital and around 70,000 CCTV cameras would be required to monitor each classroom.
When asked as to how long it may take to complete the project, Sisodia said, “The project is wide and hence we are studying the expenditure and methodology of it. And once the study is completed, the government would go for a global tender for installing CCTV cameras in classrooms.” (ANI)
