Last week, Pokemon Go developer Niantic revealed the reason for the game’s delayed launch in countries such as India. “We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokemon Go to users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokemon Go around the world an… interesting… challenge,” admits the company, reiterating its desire to bring the game to other nations.

Most of these third-party services such as Pokevision are now unusable after the latest Pokemon Go update. Plus, there’s the added side-effect of being unable to catch Pokemon while commuting or on a bike. It’s just a matter of time before the likes of China and India receive Pokemon Go as developer Niantic has cleared what it deemed were impediments to a release of the game in every country officially. Not like the absence of an official release has stopped eager fans from playing it as we’ve seen in the past few weeks.

Online Service With Data on Stolen Vehicles Across Country Launched

A new online service with complete data on stolen vehicle across the country was launched in New Delhi on Friday.

The service, Vahan Samanvaya, launched by Union Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary, will help police and public trace the database of stolen vehicles.

It was launched at a function organised to celebrate the 31st inception day of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).

The Minister also launched a Web portal named Fake Indian Currency Note (FICN) compilation system which will help NCRB to get data from all states and other agencies so as to have a complete picture on its circulation.

The NCRB is mandated to empower the Indian Police with Information Technology and is responsible for collecting, analysing the crime data of the country.

It facilitates Investigating Officers with updated IT tools and information in investigation of crimes.

The Home Ministry has entrusted the Bureau with the responsibility of implementing their flagship Plan Programme “Crime & Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS)” by March 31, 2017. The scheme envisages connecting all police stations online.

At present, out of 16,000 police stations and offices in the country, 10,000 have already been connected through this system.
