CCTNS project to make landmark change to Internal Security scenario in the country: Kiren Rijiju

The Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Kiren Rijiju has said the ongoing Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) project when completed will mark a revolutionary change to manage and monitor the Internal Security situation in the country. Addressing the 30th Raising Day function of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) here today, Shri Rijiju said it will see the dawn of new age projects including the e-courts, e-prisons and e-hospitals. He said the CCTNS project was conceived by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs as part of Police Modernization programme under the National e-Governance project. The CCTNS software application is being developed in consultation with various stakeholders particularly the States and UTs which can also make need-based alterations according to local requirements.

Lauding the NCRB, Shri Rijiju said that despite acute staff crunch, the NCRB has contributed effectively and the information they provide acts as backbone of all law and order related departments. He said the world is becoming increasingly complicated by the day and the role of NCRB is going to be crucial in the scenario of security challenges to come.

While giving welcome address, the Director General of NCRB, Shri R.R. Verma said under the CCTNS project police stations have already started generating online FIRs and a database of crime records and criminals is being prepared that will enable tracking of criminals anywhere at the press of a button.

About 58 percent of Police Stations across the country are presently generating FIR through the CCTNS system. As on February 20, 2015, 88 percent of total sites are ready for CCTNS implementation, 59 percent of the ten years’ legacy data has been digitized and 76 percent of the total sites have been provided network connectivity.

A Souvenir was released on the occasion of the Raising Day and the Indian Postal Department has released a Special Stamp to mark the occasion.
