Crime & Criminals Tracking Network Systems

Crime & Criminals Tracking Network Systems (CCTNS) is a comprehensive and integrated system connecting all police stations and investigation agencies across the country. Currently, 97% of police stations across the country are connected to CCTNS, which has around 280 million records till December 2020. The Central government had recently decided to give private and state-owned companies to access it for background checks in a bid to monetise the data.
