Facial recognition cameras are now being used by Indian Railways to keep track of the millions of people who use its services each day.  A new report by Financial Times claims that a network of 500 cameras with facial recognition abilities have been deployed in India. 

The facial recognition apparatus was developed by a Russian start-up "NtechLab" and has been operational across 30 railways stations in the Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra, including the country's economic hub Mumbai.
