    RailTel, a Miniratna PSU under Ministry of Railways has installed advanced Internet Protocol (IP) based Video Surveillance System (VSS) at 10 Railway stations under Western Railway. The stations are Bhavnagar Terminus, Udhna, Valsad, Veraval, Nagda, Navsari, Vapi, Viragam, Rajkot and Gandhidham.

RailTel is providing Video Surveillance System at stations of A1, A, B, C, D and E category, coaches of premium trains and suburban EMU coaches.

    According to a press release issued by WR CPRO Ravinder Bhakar, to have a better coverage and clearer image, four types of Full HD Cameras – Dome type (for indoor areas), bullet types (for platforms),Pan Tilt Zoom type (for parking areas) and Ultra HD- 4k cameras ( for crucial locations) are being provided. CCTV camera live feeds are displayed on multiple screens at the Railway Protection Force (RPF) control room for monitoring.

    Soon, all CCTV cameras provided in this railway station premises will be networked on optical fiber cable and the video feed of the CCTV cameras will be brought to a centralized CCTV control room from where the video feeds will be monitored by RPF personnel, enhancing the security and safety of the passengers tremendously.

    Talking about the project of providing Video Surveillance System, Puneet Chawla, Chairman and Managing Director, RailTel said ‘In the first phase, RailTel is installing VSS at 200 stations Pan India and as on date we have completed work at 81 stations across India. The Video Surveillance System will be extended to other stations and coaches soon. The work is being done utilizing the Nirbhaya fund for ensuring better safety for women.’

    Each HD camera at the station consumes approximately 1TB of data and 4k camera consumes 4 TB data per month. The recording of the video feeds from CCTV cameras will be stored for 30 days for playback, post event analysis and for investigation purposes. Important videos can be stored for longer duration. This Video Surveillance System is expected to ensure better security of passengers at railway stations and railway property.
