A mobile app named 'Hyderabad City Police- Lost Report' was today launched to facilitate citizens to report to city police about the loss of documents or articles and obtain a digitally-signed report online from police.
Hyderabad Police Commissioner M Mahender Reddy, who launched the app, said it would enable citizens to apply for duplicate documents and claim insurance of articles that are lost or missed.
"These digitally-signed police reports are issued to citizens online only in cases of lost or missing items, which don't amount to crime and where no FIRs are required to be registered," the Hyderabad Police Chief told reporters.
Presently, people are applying for police report through Mee-Seva Centres by paying service charges. The complaint will be sent to the police online by Mee-Seva Centre for further course of action.
The police station will physically interact with the complainant and verify the information furnished by the complainant and approve for issue of report.
"The complainant has to go Mee Seva Centre for collection of police report, which is digitally signed after one week.
Since this process is cumbersome and time-consuming, the people are facing lot of inconvenience to obtain a police report for the documents or articles lost or missed," Reddy explained.
In view of this, police have developed and implemented a Mobile App 'Hyderabad City Police-Lost Report' to facilitate easy issue of Police Report to the citizens in respect of loss of documents or articles.
"With the help of this app, citizens can directly file a report to the police online without going to the police station or Mee Seva Centre.
The police will register all the details furnished by the citizens through the App and issue a report which is Digitally Signed online within 3 days," Reddy said.
Citizens can download the report issued by the police into their mobiles. Further, a copy of the report will be sent to the concerned registered email-id of the complainant, the Police Commissioner added.
