Nirbhaya Fund would be providing an amount of Rs 5.5 crores for this new project of fixing CCTV cameras in the corporation schools. By this, the safety of women would be enhanced. On 159 school premises, as many as 636 CCTV cameras would be installed under this project. There would be 4 CCTV cameras in each of the 159 schools.
