Hyderabad: The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) on Friday selected Hyderabad city and 55 other cities in other states for the implementation of its pilot project on mobile radiation detection.
Under this project, city police were equipped with radiation instruments.
The police were provided two-portable radiation survey meter, a 10-digital dosimeter and go-no-go radiation survey instruments.
The training session on Mobile Radiation Detection System, which commenced on Friday, will end on July 6.
