Govt to ensure private firms enforce retirement age rule 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The labour department will conduct inspections to ensure that employers implement the state government's decision to enhance the retirement age of employees in the private sector from 58 to 60 years. According to official sources in the labour department, the close vigil will continue for two years once the government's decision comes into effect. The state Cabinet on Friday gave its approval to increase the retirement age of employees in the private sector to benefit around 21 lakh personnel. The Cabinet decision will be applicable to all private establishments which have an employee strength of 50 and above, irrespective of whether employees are hired on contract or otherwise, the sources said. It will come into effect from the day the labour department gazettes the final notification by bringing in an amendment to Schedule - 1 of Karnataka Industrial Employment (Standing Orders) Rules, 1961 which pertain to the retirement age. The draft notification was issued by the department on December 7, 2009. ...

Crime-fighting through CCTVs 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Spot a criminal in his act and track him with that visual footprint. Packing Bengaluru's Central Business District (CBD) streets with CCTVs, the city police are revving up their surveillance game. But how does that work in those dark, desolate roads on the city's outskirts? Danger lurks in every corner for thousands of working women walking that last mile home. As darkness envelopes the streets, CCTVs, even if installed in big numbers, will hit a blind alley. The message is clear: Unless the city police, BBMP and Bescom work in tandem, safety will remain a weak point. More cameras The addition of 679 CCTV cameras by end of April will see the number skyrocket to 1,008. But that is impressive only in the CBD. The City Police Commissioner admits that without adequate streetlighting, reliability of the cameras will remain under a shade. Illuminating the streets is clearly the BBMP's task. But maintaining the estimated 4.8 lakh street lamps in the Palike's jurisdictional area of about 800 sq km is not an easy ...

City police to emulate London cops in control room response 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Bengaluru police will go the London police way and upgrade the dial '100' control room system for quickest response. During a recent visit to London, city police commissioner Praveen Sood obtained information from the London police about the use of technology in control rooms for quickest response. The police have obtained Rs 20 crore funding under the mega city plan and procured equipment. The new control room will be up and running in about 45 days. Once operational, Bengaluru will become the first South Indian city to have upgraded control room. Currently, the system is functional in Jaipur and Delhi in India. The response time for reaching the spot in London is 15 minutes, while it is 25 minutes in Bengaluru. After upgrading, the police hope to set 15 minutes as response time. There are only 15 lines in the control room for over one crore population in the city. Often blank calls, mysterious calls and calls seeking information are received. Hence, lines are always engaged or much time is taken ...

Residents want surveillance for safe neighbourhoods 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Bengalureans are all for increasing CCTV coverage of the city and many Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) have already reaped benefits from getting watchful electronic eyes in their neighbourhood. Jyothi Prasad, a civic leader in Govindarajanagar, vouched for the technology, giving the example of her area. "More than 30 cameras were installed about three or four months ago. Earlier, we used to have incidents of chain-snatching, garbage dumping and vehicle thefts but now the frequency has come down drastically," she said. The RWA of her area worked with the corporator to identify spots where the infrastructure was most required. Jyothi said that residents are making use of the facility and asking for copies of the tapes. An incident of eve-teasing was also caught on tape and the perpetrators were arrested within 24 hours by identifying the vehicle registration paper, Jyothi said. Surveillance cameras not only fight crime but if installed near black spots, they prevent garbage dumping, too. Mohammed ...

A big boost to crime prevention 25.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The City police will soon bring more areas of Bengaluru under CCTV camera surveillance to prevent crimes and enhance convictions. The process to procure 679 CCTV cameras, 579 for law and order wing and 100 for traffic wing is on.The cameras will be functional in another two months. City Police Commissioner Praveen Sood says Bengaluru needs to have more CCTV cameras to help the law enforcers track down suspects and prevent crimes. "Content generated by CCTV cameras provide inputs for post-incident analysis, which may lead to detection of cases," he explains. Sood is convinced that CCTV cameras will act as deterrence to crimes. He elaborates: "Just a caution line reading 'the entire area is under CCTV surveillance' helps in crime-prevention." The number of cases being reported, especially those related to molestation, has gone up due to CCTV camera footages. "Molestations occurred in the past and occur even now. However, most cases would go unreported in the past. Thanks to CCTV footage which has evidence ...
