Crime and Criminals Tracking network and Systems (CCTNS) project
The concept of CCTNS was first conceived in 2008 by the then Home Minister, P Chidambaram in the aftermath of 2008 Mumbai attacks. His proposal was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs in 2009 and was allocated a fund of 2000 crore rupees. A pilot phase of the project was launched on 4 January 2013 by the then Home Minister Sushil kumar Shinde.

The project is implemented by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).
