Ahmedabad: Gujarat government has signed an agreement with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to develop a technology platform, which enables every police officer in the state to have access to whole police records and background information at any given time as well as access to the home ministry, reported Business Standard.

The project is in the closing stages of development. The suite of applications would enable storing, processing and securing data relating to crime records, files, orders issued, correspondence statements, bona fide police personnel records and other internal security documents.

The applications will be developed on a high-security platform accessible only to selected users. The implementation of the projects in various police stations would be done in different phases.

"The objective of commissioning such a project by the Gujarat government is to create a pro-active police force. The digitised platform means that police officers and top government officials will be able to have a uniform system in place across the state through which real-time access to any type of data will be made available," said Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Vice-President and Head Global government industry group, TCS.

TCS would be working on other innovative projects with the Gujarat government he told Business Standard.

The company has also started beaming educational programmes under an initiative with the government called ‘Suryodaya’ to around 3,000 engineering students across 34 colleges in the state.
