New Delhi: Indian railway authorities are planning to install CCTV cameras in new coaches in order to make the passengers more secure, as per reports.

The CCTV cameras will be added almost 1,000 trains, a senior RPF official was quoted as saying by a TV channel.

These cameras will supposedly be of high resolution.
The move is said to have been taken in the wake of increase in cases of robberies in trains. There have also been cases of dacoity and other things.

It has been given to believe that the installation of cameras in general coaches will be carried out first in those zones where crimes are more in running trains.

For the installations of cameras, many rounds of consultations have reportedly been carried out between members of Railway Board and its traffic management.
As of now, as per estimates, RPF and Railway Police escort more than 3,500 trains everyday across the country.
