The National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) on Thursday launched police-related citizen-centric services in New Delhi by Intelligence Bureau director Arvind Kumar.
The two online services will help citizens in searching missing persons and generating no objection certificate (NOC) for vehicles.
Both services can be accessed through digitalpolicecitizenservices.gov.in or through a link in the existing Digital Police Portal.
So far such services are being provided through the state-citizen portals and it is the first time that these are being launched centrally.
“By using the services citizens will be able to search their missing kins and lost vehicles,” said NCRB director Ram Phal Pawar.
“They can look into the national database of found, unidentified persons/bodies and unclaimed vehicles,” Pawar added.
“This will benefit relatives of missing persons and save them from running around pillar to post,” he added.
“Moreover, through Generate Vehicle NOC service the citizens will also be able to ascertain the status of a vehicle before its second-hand purchase,” he said.
“The service will help the persons to know whether a second-hand vehicle is suspicious or clean from police records,” Pawar reiterated.
“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,” he reiterated.
