The NCRB — mandated to empower the Indian Police with information technology (IT) and is responsible for collecting, analysing the crime data of the country — facilitates Investigating Officers with updated IT tools and information in investigation of crimes.
The home ministry has entrusted the NCRB with the responsibility of implementing its flagship plan programme Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS) by March 31, 2017.

In the future roadmap of the government, CCTNS will become one of the major components of integrated criminal justice system.
