Use of modern technology in security arrangements

Apart from this, advanced CCTV cameras equipped with face recognition system have been installed to monitor the Parliament House complex. These CCTV cameras will rotate 360 degrees and keep watch. This will make it very difficult for a suspicious person to enter the premises. Modern weapons and equipment will be provided to the security forces deployed for the protection of Parliament and every person present inside the building.

Strong arrangements will be made for cyber security
Special emphasis is being laid on cyber security in the new Parliament House. For this, two separate security operating centers will be established. One of these will be for Internet-integrated networks and the other will be for airgapped networks (separated from the intranet and the rest of the network). The purpose of a security operations center is to protect against cyber threats. SOC’s analysts will monitor its network round the clock and investigate any potential security incidents.

Why was there a need for a new Parliament House complex?
Actually, the old structure of the Parliament is about 100 years old. The present Parliament was made according to the needs and technology of that time. Now there has been a considerable increase in parliamentary activities, workforce and the number of people coming. In such a situation, the need for a new Parliament House was being felt. The old Parliament House is not able to meet the current requirements in terms of space, facilities and technology. Not only this, the basic facilities were also getting dilapidated. The existing building faces several challenges including outdated communication system, security system. Water supply and sewer lines, air conditioning, fire fighting system, CCTV and audio-visual systems were added to the existing building later. This has had a bad effect on the building.
