CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has directed the government to extend the facility of Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) through online to all State Transport Corporations too.
Presently, this facility of sharing documents of road accident cases is made available to insurance companies alone, on payment of `100 per document.

Justice PN Prakash gave a directive to this effect last week, while passing further interim orders on a criminal original petition from Cholamandalam General Insurance Company.
It was brought to the notice of the judge that the SC had directed application of the ‘details of accident report’ scheme throughout India and mandated the DGPs of all the States to implement it.

The judge directed the government to make this facility available to the District Legal Services Authorities numbering 100 and the Motor Accident Claims Tribunals, numbering 300, before posting the matter for further hearing on July 15.
