The main hall of the OCC consists of 32 large video screens, arranged in two rows. The security room of the OCC has eight screens installed to monitor CCTVs.


Vinod Agrawal, Director of System and Operations, Maha Metro, said, “There are 50-60 CCTV cameras installed to monitor the metros. The cameras are being monitored by the OCC. Faulty cameras can also be recognised through OCC. We can directly control the security through OCC if the crowd increases by shutting down the platform entry, stopping the ticket counters, etc.” “We are planning to make Wi-Fi available very soon,” he added.
