The Haryana Government announced on Sunday that all bus stands in the State will be fitted with CCTV cameras to prevent any mischief on the premises.
“A sum of Rs. 4 crore will be spent on the installation of CCTV cameras in all the bus stands,” Haryana Director General of State Transport Arun Kumar said here.
He said cameras will also be installed in city buses running in Gurgaon and Faridabad.
Besides this, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) will be installed in city buses but it will take another six months to complete the procedure as tenders will be invited next month, he said.
Mr. Kumar said the Transport Department will increase the number of buses in Gurgaon to 150 in the next four months. These will include 50 AC and 100 non-AC buses.
The local bus service which was initially started with 32 buses per shift on May 12 last year, now has 100 buses plying during the time period, he said.
