The state government has inked a Rs949-crore project deal with a Larsen and Toubro-led consortium comprising MTNL and CMS Computers Limited to install and operate a closed circuit camera (CCTV) based surveillance system across Mumbai. 

The system will not only monitor the city’s coastline using thermal imaging cameras, but also consist of a picture intelligence unit which can ensure real-time matching of photographs of people with dynamic databases like that from prisons and police stations, and use camera-mounted vans to oversee morchas, processions and congregations.
