The Minister also launched a web portal named Fake Indian Currency Note (FICN) compilation system which will help NCRB to get data from all states and other agencies so as to have a complete picture on its circulation.
The NCRB is mandated to empower the Indian Police with Information Technology and is responsible for collecting, analysing the crime data of the country.
It facilitates Investigating Officers with updated IT tools and information in investigation of crimes. The Home Ministry has entrusted the Bureau with the responsibility of implementing their flagship Plan Programme "Crime & Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS)" by March 31, 2017.
The scheme envisages connecting all police stations online. At present, out of 16,000 police stations and offices in the country, 10,000 have already been connected through this system.
