New Delhi, Jan 29 (IANS) The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) on Wednesday launched two police-related, citizen-centric services on the Crime and CCTNS platform which will help people in searching for missing persons and generating vehicle NOC (No Objection Certificates).
It is the first time that these services — ‘Missing Person Search’ and ‘Generate Vehicle NOC’ — are being launched centrally while such services were being provided through the state citizen portals so far.
These services can be accessed through ‘digitalpolicecitizenservices.gov.in’ portal or through a link in the existing ‘Digital Police Portal’. Intelligence Bureau Director Arvind Kumar presided over the launch of these services.
NCRB Director Ram Phal Pawar, while addressing the gathering, said: “Citizens can search for their missing kin against the national database of recovered unidentified found persons or unidentified dead bodies from their homes. This will hugely benefit relatives of missing persons and save them from running around pillar to post, as all such details including photos are available in Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (NCRB) and will now be accessible to citizens through this portal at their convenience.”
In this user-friendly search, a citizen may enter search criteria in the portal and the system will search for it from the available national database across the country and will display the result immediately with photograph and other details, he said.
About Generate Vehicle NOC, the NCRB Director said that it allows citizens to ascertain the status of a vehicle before its second-hand purchase, as to whether it is suspicious or clean from police records. “This search could be made against national database based on vehicle’s details. One can generate and download the relevant NOC required by the RTO before the transfer of ownership.”
