The most important initiative this week was the inauguration of the IP based CCTV Surveillance System at the Commercial Taxes Check Post at Amaravila near Trivandrum. The system which enables anytime, anywhere online monitoring of the Commercial Taxes Check Posts in the State by the concerned officials has far reaching implications, if utilised effectively. The Check Posts across the state are rooted in corruption and the Finance Minister has been fighting this single handedly. According to him, the ‘Corruption free Walayar’ (Check Post) has been a success and this is another step in this direction. The State Government plans to install this Surveillance System at ten Check Posts in the State in the next three months.
