new Delhi. Indian Railways has canceled the tender issued for thermal cameras. Actually it was feared that Chinese companies could benefit from the terms of the tender. According to sources, according to the information received by the vendors, the conditions given for the purchase of equipment could benefit the Chinese company. In view of this, the Railways decided to cancel the tender itself.

In fact, last month, the government rail company RailTel had asked for tenders for 800 thermal scanners. According to the conditions, with the help of these cameras, not only the exact temperature of the body can be detected but it should also be known whether the passenger has worn the mask or not. According to a railway official, he was contacted by several other vendors and said that he too could supply such cameras. In this case, the old tender has been canceled to include more people in the tender process. However, the source clarified that it was informed by the vendors that whatever conditions have been put will benefit the Chinese company Hikvision, which is one of the largest video surveillance companies in the world and it is currently on its CCTV market in India. Has strong grip. At the same time, Hikvision is offering the same kind of technology that Railways have demanded for special technology in cameras. This will give full benefit to this company from the terms of the tender of the railway.
