The department has already finished the task in 16 states and work in 11 other states is progressing, to be completed by the end of this year, NCD Director, Sabhi Halan, told reporters here today.
Tamil Nadu has been allotted Rs 103 crores for this purpose, he said, adding that all police stations in the state`s Thiruvallur district have been computerised.
