L.S.US.Q.NO. 1398 FOR 08.12.2015


(e): CCTNS is a complex project with the project activities being undertaken by number of stakeholders. All States/UTs went through a complex tendering process to engage System Integrators- involving all the clearances and approvals from the State/UT level Governance structure of CCTNS project, which took time. Also frequent changes of officers responsible for CCTNS at State/UT level led to delays. Such large program was being carried out for the first time, but now enough experience has been gained and the project is in advanced stage of implementation. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) in its meeting held on 18th November 2015 has approved the proposal of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) for extension and revamping of the Crime and Criminals Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) Project. Further this Ministry has revamped the governance structure for monitoring the Project implementation.

(f): CCTNS project is expected to be fully implemented by March 2017 for achieving its objectives. A Provision has been made in the project to digitize the old records for last ten years in the project and work on this is also in progress.
