Now register FIRs, pay fines online through HP web portal
Himachal Pradesh police’s newly designed interactive web portal ‘Kanoon Vyavastha’ has been thrown open to citizens, tourists and all those who wish to help the police curb crime in the state.
Now, people can even make online traffic challan payment for violation of the Motor Vehicle Act. Citizens, who are not keen to go to police stations can use the new technologies to reach out to the law enforcing agencies, who are just a click away.
“Complainants in certain cases can get a response within a few minutes, and efforts are being made to nab culprits, including those involved in serious offences of assaults, rash and negligent driving, molestation and cheating, in no time,” said Director General of Police I D Bhandari.
Bhandari terms some of the new innovations as the beginning of the second phase of good policing in Himachal Pradesh.
On November 28, an SMS-generated complaint relating to illegal mining in Dehra Sub-Division received at 10 pm prompted the local SHO to raid the site within a few hours. The accused were nabbed and a fine of Rs 12,700 was imposed on them, which was recovered on the spot.
Of the 1,821 SMSes received by the police at its 24X7 control room this year, 22 FIRs were registered without the complainants having to visit the police stations. One FIR was related to a rape case
