About ICCCs

The ICCCs have been designed for real-time monitoring and were at first aimed at monitoring and controlling power and water, traffic movement, sanitation, city connectivity, integrated building management, and Internet infrastructure. However, the ICCCs will now also be linked to the Crime and Criminal Tracking Networks and Systems (CCTNS) of the Home Ministry. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these command centres also functioned as war rooms. The smart infrastructure that has been developed under the Smart Cities Mission like the ICCCs helped in the fight against the pandemic through better communication, information dissemination, supporting effective management, and predictive analysis.
