New Delhi: In Delhi government schools, parents will get access to live closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of their ward's classroom.
“Each parent will be given access to see his child studying in class on real-time basis on his/her phone. This will make the whole system transparent and accountable and would ensure safety of kids,” said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The meeting was also attended by the state Education Minister Manish Sisodia, PWD Minister Satyendar Jain, Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash and officials of the departments of education, PWD, UD and DSIIDC.
The process of installation of CCTVs in schools is expected to begin within the next three months.
“Once the project starts, it was decided in the meeting that the Education Minister, Secretary Education and Director Education would have the rights to view any classroom of any Delhi Government schools through the app at any point of time,” stated a release from Delhi government.
The new system also has an auto complaint system to check the non-functioning of any CCTV installed in the schools.
