The West Bengal (WB), India State police headquarters has undertaken the Common Integrated Police Application project to connect all police stations across the 19 districts online. The state government is expecting to connect all police stations by 2008.
The state government has initiated the project under the National e-Governance Plan (NeGP). The project is expected to improve the work quality and efficiency of police and help them get timely information even from the distant police stations. In the first phase of the project, more than 200 computers are sanctioned for 56 police stations across the state. In addition to FIRs over e-mail, the police will also be able to maintain records of the general diary digitally. In the first phase seven police stations in the district will be computerised.
