CCTNS is a Mission Mode Project (MMP) under the National e-Governance Plan of Govt. of India.
CCTNS aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated system for enhancing the efficiency
and effectiveness of policing. It will not only automate Police functions at Police station
and higher levels but will also create facilities and mechanism to provide public services
like registration of online complaints, ascertaining the status of case registered at the
police station, verification of persons etc.
The records of crimes and criminals available at one police station will be accessible to
any other police office. The goals of the system are to facilitate collection, storage,
retrieval, analysis, transfer and sharing of data and information at the police station
and between the police station and the State Headquarters and the Central Police
Organizations. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) is the central nodal agency that
would manage CCTNS
Kerala has been selected as a pilot state by NCRB for the implementation of CCTNS project.
State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB) is the state nodal agency responsible for implementing
the project. Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) has been selected as the System Integrator
(SI) for implementing the Project. Accenture Services Pvt. Ltd. was selected as the
State Project Monitoring Unit (SPMU)for monitoring the implementation of CCTNS in the state.
