The focus of the project is to  promote safety of its citizens through surveillance IT infrastructure and drive awareness on personal safety and security.  It also supports the Government of Telangana's objective of setting up an Integrated Command Control Centre connected to a city-wide CCTV surveillance system. The centre is set up to handle emergencies, crisis and disaster management efforts, and support the objective of making Cyberabad a safe city and world class IT destination.

"Security is a top priority for IT companies and CGI wants to ensure that this is applied not just in our operations, but also in our communities,"  said George Mattackal, President of CGI's Asia Pacific Global Delivery Centers of Excellence. "As part of our commitment to improve the social well-being of the communities in which we live and work, we want to contribute in creating an environment, through our expertise in IT infrastructure, where citizens are able to feel secure."

As part of the partnership, CGI will shoulder the maintenance of the CCTV cameras, with their professionals conducting training and workshops to help the centre in adopting the latest technology and surveillance techniques to facilitate the effective implementation of the project.

"The CCTV cameras will help support solving cases in the shortest amount of time," said Sri. V. C. Sajjanar, Commissioner of Police in Cyberabad. "We thank the CGI team for supporting us in our endeavours in creating a safe and secure Cyberabad."

Krishna Yedula, General Secretary for SCSC, also said, "Thank you to CGI for coming forward and taking part in this community initiative. This will help significantly enhance safety and security aspects in the IT corridor, making it a safe IT destination."
