The system is claimed to be the first such initiative by a state. It will enable police to register an FIR with a single click.
Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao launched the CCTNS in Nagpur in the presence of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) K P Bakshi, Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal, and other dignitaries.
Rao said, “CCTNS has the potential to transform the working mechanism and make police force more people-friendly. It is an affirmative step towards achieving the goal of ‘Digital Maharashtra.’”
Chief Minister Fadnavis announced that many other applications related to CCTNS to make police people-oriented will be implemented in the state. “The state government is planning to put every smart city under CCTV system surveillance. Mumbai would also come under CCTV coverage in a year.”
