1 - To obtain the details of clinical stage and types of treatment

The Indian Council of Medical Research initiated a network of cancer registries
across the country under the National Cancer Registry Programme (NCRP) in December
1981. This move followed the recognition that there was an urgent need for strengthening
the existing cancer registries and organization of new cancer registries in different
regions of the country. The programme was commenced with the following objectives:
1. To generate reliable data on the magnitude and patterns of cancer;
2. To undertake epidemiologic studies in the form of case control or cohort studies
based on observations of registry
3. Provide research base for developing appropriate strategies to aid in National
Cancer Control Programme; this would
be in the form of planning, monitoring and
evaluation of activities under this programme;
4. Develop human resource in cancer registration and epidemiology.
