Chandigarh, Sept 30, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
In Haryana, complainants need not rush to the police stations to obtain information or status about a registered FIR as Haryana Police has developed a module to send SMS to citizens’ mobiles when FIR is lodged.
With the new system, people will soon obtain the current status of the FIR on their mobile phones from the comfort of their homes. In addition, the name and mobile number of the Investigating Officer will also be communicated to the complainants through SMS. State Police has developed a module on the Haryana Police website making it possible.
This was revealed by Sh. O.P. Singh, Director, State Crime Record Bureau, Haryana after the 47th meeting of State Empowered Committee chaired by Director General of Police (DGP), Haryana Sh. P.K. Agrawal.
The meeting was also attended by representatives of National Crime Record Bureau, Home Department, Finance Department, NIC and HARTRON along with other senior officers of Haryana Police from Police Headquarters and field units.
He said that Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) will be integrated with Integrated Road Accident Database (iRAD) which will help in recognizing the black spots on the roads in the State. Precautionary measures will be taken to save the precious lives of citizens by putting a tap on unfortunate road accidents across the state.
It was apprised in the meeting that the Union Ministry of Home Affairs has recently added a new parameter in the Pragati Dashboard developed by National Crime Record Bureau regarding the response on Helpline 1930, established for helping the victims of cyber frauds or scams.
The State ranks second in the Country after Gujarat with a 99.98% score in all parameters of CCTNS Pragati Dashboard which is being constantly monitored by PMO.
Sh. Singh also informed that various initiatives are being taken to monitor the investigation of criminal cases and to minimize the crimes in the State using the data available in CCTNS.
A detailed action plan has been prepared for this purpose by 11-member committee headed by Commissionerate of Police, Faridabad Sh. Vikas Arora. It is also pertinent to mention here that State Crime Record Bureau have been designated as the Nodal Unit for the implementation of CCTNS and the Inter-operable Criminal Justice System (ICJS) in the State just two months ago.
