  • National Crimes Records Bureau (NCRB) - the principal source of reference by policy makers, police, criminologists, researchers and media - both in India and abroad, with the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D).
  • BPR&D has been given charge of NCRB so that there is more research based and methodological data collection in future as data collection by NCRB as of now was that of taken from states and sometimes inaccurate.
  • BPR&D, which conducts its own researches and commissions many to private institutes/bodies to study the crime patterns, policing and other related aspects. 
  • NCRB's core function is to collect data on crimes related to IPC and other sections, courts, convictions etc... and then analysed.
  • On the other hand, BPRD's research is not related to crime.
  • It focusses more on research and data collection on how police, central paramilitary forces work, manpower problems, pattern of registration of crime, or influences of police on society etc.
