Panaji: In the wake of terror threat,
electric perimeter security fencing will soon be installed to guard vital installations including the Legislative Assembly and the Secretariat in Goa, Chief Minister Digambar Kamat said.

"To enhance security measures at the important and key
installations of the state and to safeguard them from any
untoward incidents of terrorist attack and such other
intrusion of anti-social elements, I thought it appropriate to increase the security of such important buildings by installing electric perimeter security fencing," Kamat said addressing the State Legislative Assembly yesterday.
The security fencing system will be installed with
integrated surveillance system, he said.

Budgetary provision of Rs 5 crore has been made for
this high security system by the state government.

He said that in the first phase of the initiative, the
Legislative Assembly and Secretariat complex shall be taken up.
The state government has also proposed to install
surveillance cameras, along the main stretches of the state
highway.

The recently tabled Economic Survey (ES) has mentioned
that unmanned cameras would be installed throughout states at
major roads and junctions, public places and places of
strategic importance.
