NEW DELHI: Irked over the indifferent approach of deputy commissioners of police towards updating records in the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS), the Delhi Police chief Alok Kumar Verma has directed all of them to do it with immediate effect. He has also warned them that any negligence on this will not be tolerated.

Sources informed that Verma said, “Performance of all districts in updating the data in records is only 40 percent.” The staff of all districts should enter the current data, and option of hiring entry operators can be explored for updating the previous years' data, he directed.

The CCTNS project is aimed at creating an integrated system for enhancing the efficiency of policing through e-governance. It is an IT-enabled tracking system for investigation of crime and detection of criminals.

The chief also found a glaring gap between the number of people arrested and dossiers prepared, and directed to fill the gap.
