A review Committee on Police Reforms, constituted by the Ministry of Home Affairs, made a recommendation for ‘Free Registration of Crime’. The Recommendation was sent to all States/UTs for implementation as ‘Police’ is a State subject. There is no proposal with Government of India for e-registration of FIRs through Public Kiosks.
For technical up-gradation and modernization of police stations, and higher level police offices, the Ministry is implementing the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System(CCTNS). One of the objectives of the scheme is improving delivery of citizen-centric services through effective usages of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
This was stated by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Shri Mullappally Ramachandran in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
