BMC’s Vigilant Eye: Battling Illegal Dumping with Technological Might
In a proactive move to curb illegal debris dumping across the city, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is set to deploy 49 CCTV cameras at 30 notorious spots. Despite forming ward-level squads and appealing to the state transport commissioner for vehicle registration cancellations, tangible results have remained elusive.
The BMC’s latest endeavor involves installing cameras at strategic locations, including Rajendra Nagar police chowky, Carter Road no. 5, Sukurwadi bus depot at Borivali East, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Road, and the stretch from Seawood building to Adani Substation in Gorai-3, Borivali West.
As the tender process unfolds, the BMC aims to intensify its monitoring capabilities, with live feeds from the new cameras directed to ward control rooms. This technological advancement seeks to identify and apprehend violators effectively. The installation process is expected to be completed within a month, marking a significant stride in the city’s battle against illegal dumping.
The BMC’s holistic approach, combining surveillance technology and strategic camera placement, demonstrates a commitment to environmental stewardship and a resolve to keep the cityscape free from the blight of unauthorized debris disposal.
