Axis network video solution helps make Karnal a future-ready city

Implemented Axis solution helps reduce crime rate, while providing an avenue for the technologies of tomorrow

“We are elated to be chosen for this mega Smart City project that has helped reduce crime rates and curb traffic violations. This implementation furthers Karnal’s Smart City mission by creating preparedness for future optimized integrations.” Rajiv Batra, Founder & Owner, Door Sanchar Systems.


Karnal, a historical city located in Haryana and known as the birthplace of Karna, one of the main protagonists from the mythological epic Mahabharata. In the past 2-3 years Karnal has witnessed increased cases violence against women, mob congregation and traffic violations. In June 2017, when Karnal was included in the smart city project, the need for surveillance solutions was realized by the Government. The authorities were on a lookout for solutions that not only deterred crime and violations, but also provide flexible integration into existing or future technologies. A plan was finalized for implementation of smart surveillance solutions for supporting the city police in identifying criminals and traffic rule violators.


The solution involved implementation of 104 Axis fixed box cameras (AXIS P1365) and 25 Axis PTZ cameras (AXIS P5635-E) which were installed across major junctions, streets and tourist spots in Karnal. They were primarily chosen because of their ability to capture rapid movement in HDTV resolution and deliver excellent image quality even in low-light conditions. The cameras come with Axis proprietary Zipstream technology which enables compressed format streaming in real time, allowing transfer of data on low bandwidth. The technology also boosts the compatibility quotient making it ideal for integration with other products in the long-run.


The security upgradations across Karnal have been instrumental in helping the city police to shift from the traditional method of postmortem analysis to digital real-time monitoring thereby assisting the authorities to bring down crime and traffic violations.
