For Efficiency, NCRB merges with BPR&D
  The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the flagship unit of Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), has been merged with the Bureau of Police Research & Development (BPR&D). The NCRB was established in 1986 with a mandate to empower Indian Police with information technology solutions and criminal intelligence in a bid to enable them to enforce the law effectively,
  The MHA issued an order in this regard, which said: "In order to improve administrative efficiency and optimal utilisation of resources of BPR&D and NCRB, the competent authority has decided to merge both the organisations with immediate effect." The order, issued by Raman Kumar Under Secretary, clearly specifies that NCRB Director Ish Kumar will now report to BPR&D Director General MC Borwankar.
  Reacting to the merger of the two organisations, Borwankar said, "The NCRB mandate is to collect data and they did not have a research wing unlike BPR&D. With both organizations merged, it will help in efficiently researching policing matters and eventually improve law enforcement and correctional administrations."
  She also said that NCRB's important project, Crime and Criminal Tracking Networks and Systems (CCTNS), will give a back up to research carried out in these fields. "It will have lot of potential," she stated. CCTNS is a project for creating a comprehensive and integrated system for effective policing through e-Governance.
