Chandigarh, Feb 12, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)
Now citizens don’t need to visit SP office or Police Station to obtain police verification certificates in Haryana. In view of public’s convenience, these certificates can now be obtained while sitting at home through Haryana Police’s HarSamay citizen portal.
With an aim to make citizen service delivery fast, citizen friendly, transparent, and corruption free, Haryana police has now integrated digital signatures in the verification certificates issued to citizens. (i.e. Character Certificate, Tenant Verification Certificate, Police Clearance Certificate etc.).
This was formally launched today by Home Minister Mr Anil Vij in presence of Additional Chief Secretary, Home Mr Vijai Vardhan and DGP Haryana Mr Manoj Yadava at Haryana Civil Secretariat. ADGP IT and Telecom Mr. Arshinder Chawla, SP IT Mrs Manisha Choudhary along with other senior police officers were also present on this occasion.
As a first step, the functionality of downloading digitally signed Character Certificate, Tenant Certificate and Police Clearance Certificate from Haryana Police’s HarSamay citizen portal is being made live and available to citizens. In future, other verification services like Employee Verification, Domestic help verification, Threat Verification etc. will also be integrated with digital signature.
Now Citizens can log-in to HarSamay citizen portal and download digitally signed verification certificates from anywhere as per their convenience. Previously, they had to visit SP office of their respective districts to collect the physically signed certificates in person. Now with this change, they can avail delivery of digitally signed certificates directly from the HarSamay portal.
Previously, with the launch of citizen portal in 2015, citizens were empowered to raise service requests directly from HarSamay portal. However, high pendency of requests was a major issue in most of the services.
For example, in the period between 2015 and 2019, the service performance of three of the most used verification services (Character Certificate, Police Clearance Certificate, Employee Verification Certificate) is given below.
|S. No.||Service Name||Registered||Approved||Pending|
|3||Police Clearance Certificate||16461||13280||1921|
Now, the police can complete the entire verification process from their end and make the digitally signed certificate available in HarSamay Portal. Citizens can log-in and download certificates as per their chosen time and place of convenience.
