Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik launched a virtual police station along with two other transformational projects of the Odisha Police with an aim to reduce human interface with government offices.
The three projects include Virtual Police Station, Road Accident Case Documents Module and Medico-Legal Opinion System, read a statement. Launching these projects at a function at Lok Seva Bhawan, the Chief Minister said that his government was committed to providing citizen-centric governance under 5-T.
“This is the first transformation project under 5T initiative which the police department is going to implement. One of the main objectives under the 5T is to reduce the necessity for the public to go to government offices. The Virtual Police Station that has been inaugurated today is a huge step in this regard,” Patnaik said.
The Virtual Police Station is an online mechanism established at the State Crime Records Bureau in Bhubaneswar. It will facilitate online registration of FIR in unknown motor vehicle theft cases. If a case remains undetected for 21 days, the final form shall be auto-generated at CCTNS. It will benefit citizens from claiming insurance in motor vehicle theft cases. A citizen can also file FIR through citizens portal or Sahayata mobile app, read a statement.
