A team from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) visited the two pilot locations for the launch of the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS).
The pilot project of CCTNS is due to be launched on December 25 in all pilot police stations in the entire nation. B Radhika, an IPS officer from MHA led the team, which visited the Police Station, Sector 19 and the office of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) East, which were decided to be the pilot locations in UT.
Talking to Newsline, B Radhika said, "There are certain specifications required to set up an entirely new system, that too at a national level. We have come here to ensure that the two police stations have made the necessary arrangements so that the pilot project of Go-Live can be launched successfully".
"With installation of the CCTNS system and upgradation of data, all the police stations across the nation will be able to access information about anyone against whom an FIR is registered. All we have to do is enter the details of a person and we can get all the criminal records of the person from any state," said Alok Kumar, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), UT while talking to Newsline .
MHA officer also added that the CCTNS project will be made functional in all the pilot locations for about three months. In these three months, hitches related to the functioning of the system will be dealt with. At the same time, more additions will be made to the software.
"It will be our best effort that once the project is formally launched all over India after the pilot project is over, we are be able to make the project user friendly," said B Radhika.
She said that the project will be made multilingual. On December 25, the pilot project of the CCTNS will be launched in Hindi and English. After the MHA teams conducted surveys, it was realized that there are many places where neither of the two languages are very popular. "It will be a little difficult to make the system language flexible nevertheless, we are working on it," said B Radhika.
