Mantralaya in Mumbai considered as headquarters of the government is supposedly planning to get more securities. Entering Mantralaya will now get more difficult for the common man as the home department plans to tighten the internal security by controlling access points for visitors and vehicle monitoring system.

Citizens looking to enter the building will now be given a visitor’s pass with his/her picture taken at the entry points. Also, the access will be restricted to the departments which people want to visit.

The home department has chalked out a plan to clench up security, in association with the public works and general administration departments, on the directives of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis immediately after a farmer alleged was hit by a police on duty in Mantralaya four months ago.

The plan is being finalized by a high-powered committee headed by the chief secretary, after a private consultancy firm, in its report, stated the measures would cost Rs12 crore.

As part of the security plan, the main and annexure buildings of Mantralaya will get additional 300 CCTV cameras to keep a check on the internal security. Security agencies have also suggested restricting vehicle entries inside the building by issuing specially-coded passes to permitted vehicles.

Nearly 2500 people visit Manatralaya daily and the number goes up to 4,000 on the day of the cabinet meeting, when all ministers attend their office in the state government headquarters.
