This system is to work as a foundation for act as a foundation for a national level searchable platform of facial images of the criminals. The repository is yet to be established. As of July 2019, National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has invited bids for AFRS system.
The initial plans are to create a repository of around 1.5croire criminals.
