Government schools in Delhi will soon give access to CCTV footages for parents. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in his tweet said that parents in the state would quickly be able to monitor students studying in government schools on a real-time basis. “The government has plans to install CCTV cameras in all classrooms of all government schools. Complaints against teachers coming late or such will also be factually made on record with the help of these cameras,” Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of the state, said.

The government has informed that the state would soon start the process of installing CCTV cameras in all government schools. Kejriwal, along with the deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia holds the education portfolio. Kejriwal on Friday held a meeting to review the project to install CCTV cameras in all government schools, reports Hindustan Times. He informed that the installation would start within three months.

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

How Does It Function?

Each parent will be given a unique ID which will enable them to log in to the mobile app developed by the government. The parents will get live streaming of CCTV footages through the app. “The mobile app is still being developed. It will allow parents to see live CCTV footage of their child’s classroom. Parents should know the classroom number of their child in, and they can access footage of that room,” an official of the education department said to Hindustan Times.

If any parent wants to complain something, they can use the app to register it. The concerned departments will address the issues raised by the parents. An auto complaint system will check if any CCTV is not working. The concerned officials including the education minister, education secretary and director of education will also have access to the CCTV footages.

The Reason

The security issues in the schools have prompted the government to establish a new system. The murder of a seven-year-old boy in Ryan International school in Gurgaon and the alleged rape of a five-year-old girl in a school in Shahdara, East Delhi have raised concerns among the parents regarding the safety of their children.
