Bhubaneswar, Jan 29 (LocalWire): Naveen Patnaik, the Chief Minister of Odisha, announced three ‘transformational projects’ initiated by the Odisha Police earlier this morning via his twitter handle.
The three projects, namely Virtual Police Station, Road Accident Case Document Module and Medico-Legal Opinion System, in order ‘to reduce the necessity of citizens visiting police stations,’ as the tweet says.
The initiative looks quite reasonable as most of us avoid going to police stations even under certain unavoidable circumstances due to our busy schedules and other reasons.
The Virtual Police Station initiative by the Odisha Police will certainly reduce the strain at the police stations and should ease the process of filing FIRs and reporting issues online.
“The FIRs can also be filed through Citizens Portal or Sahayata Mobile App,” the tweet said.
The Road Accident Case Document Module will help access documents and expedite the insurance claim process.
Citizens can also report cases of thefts as a benefit of this initiative. Furthermore, insurance companies can download desired documents from FIRs as well.
The web-based Medico-Legal Opinion System will ease “the process of getting medical examination reports, helping police, medical professionals and victims.
Online requisition & submission of reports will ensure transparency, reduce delays and remove outside interference,” informed the tweet.
The police can request for documents from the victims and doctors can submit reports using this new feature.
The projects are in line with the increasing digitalization across all fields of work in the country.
