The Crime & Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) project,funded by the central government,will be operational across the state by March 2014,confirmed UP chief secretary Jawed Usmani while holding a meeting of state apex committee on Wednesday.
He said that all the police stations and other offices of the state police will be connected through CCTNS and 62,420 policemen will be imparted computer training for implementation of the project.
The project will help common men lodging their complaints online and applying for character verification,police inquiry report required for passport,arms licence,tenants verification and other documents without visiting their local police station,the chief secretary added.
Each complaint/application will be allotted a unique code which will be used for pursuing the progress in the particular matter. The complainant will be handed over a computerised receipt of the FIR from the concerned police station.
He also said that the police agencies across the country will also be connected through CCTNS to exchange data. The National Crime Record Bureau is the nodal agency to implement the project and WIPRO has developed the software.
The pilot testing of the software is going on in one police station each in Lucknow,Gautam Budh Nagar and Varanasi districts,Usmani confirmed.
