The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has launched a logo design competition for Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS) Project.
“The last date for submission of entry is August 31, 2015. All entries must be submitted through creative corner section of www.mygov.in or on the email id – firstname.lastname@example.org. Entry should be accompanied by a brief explanation of the design and how it symbolises the ethos of the scheme,” the ministry said.
“The competition allows cash reward of Rs.1 lakh (Rupees One Lakh only) from Ministry of Home Affairs for the selected entry. All entries received would be assessed by a selection committee on creativity, originality, composition, artistic merit, and its relevance to the ethos of the scheme.”
The winning design of the logo would be the intellectual property of the Government of India and would be used nationally for CCTNS on website/social and print media.
Detailed terms and conditions of the competition are available on www.mygov.in.
Under CCTNS, the process of crime registration, investigation and prosecution in more than 20,000 police stations and higher offices across the country is being computerising and shall also enable electronic sharing of crime related information among various States and Central Agencies. The Digital police portal is also being designed to provide online citizen centric services such as report a crime, reporting lost property, reporting of cyber-crime, police verification services, information pertaining to citizen rights, free legal services and many more such features.
The CCTNS, once fully implemented, would significantly enhance the effectiveness of the police in investigating cases and would directly benefit the citizens of the country.
