Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala government has given administrative sanction to buy a new hard disk to provide CCTV footage from the Secretariat to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). CCTV footage between June 2019 and June 2020 will be handed over to the NIA.

A hard disk that can store a large amount of data will be bought following a tender process. Administrative sanction has been given to buy a hard disk with 400 TB capacity by spending Rs 68 lakh. The electronics section of the General Administration Department will invite a global tender in this regard.

It is impossible for the NIA to come to the secretariat and examine the CCTV footage. The Kerala Secretariat has 83 CCTV cameras on its premises. Examining such a large collection of footages is not easy.
