Soon, the state police will be able to get the ownership details of any registered vehicle at the click of a button, enabling them to do away with the much circuitous way of obtaining such details physically from the Regional Transport Office.
The software for this will be installed at all the police stations across the state with the implementation of the second phase of the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System. The CCTNS was inaugurated by chief minister Harish Rawat a few days ago in Dehradun.
The software will give the police the access to a digitised database containing all the details of vehicles registered under the RTO. Soon, the database will be linked with the Forensic Science Laboratory.
SSP Dehradun Ajay Rautela said, “We would be able to access the registration number of any vehicle on our computers, which would enable quick identification as well as investigation of the cases involving that particular vehicle.
Under the present phase of the CCTNS, the govt is digitising all documents pertaining to criminals and crimes filed till ten years ago to enable the computerisation of the records bureau.
According to the state police headquarters, 60% of the documents have been digitised so far and has been linked with 171 websites.
