Bengaluru City Commissioner: CCTV cameras must be installed in restaurants and pubs.
Bengaluru City Commissioner B Dayananda has advised restaurants, bars, and IT companies with a footfall of more than 100 persons to install CCTV cameras as a matter of course to ensure safety. Owners of public venues who fail to install cameras will face penalties, according to Dayananda.
On Saturday, he spoke at the ‘Masika Janasamparka’ – a public assembly – held at Ambedkar Bhavan in Yelahanka New Town. Dayananda said that the Public Safety Act requires proprietors of public venues with more than a hundred visitors each day to install CCTV cameras. Failure to observe those guidelines will result in sanctions.
“Inspectors have the authority to monitor compliance with all rules.” If the establishments do not follow the guidelines, they will be fined Rs 5,000. If they are caught again, the fine would be Rs 10,000,” he warned.
