Cops Set To Mine Registration Data For Verification
Soon, tenants may be exempted from visiting police stations for the mandatory verification. This could be possible as the registration department is set to transfer its data to the police department. Details submitted to the registration department, such as proof of name, past residence address, etc, will be shared with the police department through a special software.
However, those who submit documents manually at the registration department for leave and licence agreement will still have to visit police stations for verification. A source in the Inspector General of Registration (IGR) department said the data transfer process is in the last stage and the National Informatics Centre is helping with the same. “We had proposed the plan a year ago and now, it is in the final stages,” said an official.
Apolice official told TOIthat once the data is shared with them, citizens need not visit police stations. “When the registration department mooted the idea, we had put forth our requirements, which include citizen verification identity cards as well as residence proof, both current and past, and nationality. These details are anyway submitted in the registration details. There is no point duplicating the information. If it is provided to us, we will have it easy,” said WANT TO REGISTER PROPERTY ONLINE?
