The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

LA­HORE: Chair­man Pun­jab IT Board (PITB) Dr. Umar Saif has said that in line with the di­rec­tions of Chief Min­is­ter Pun­jab, Muham­mad She­hbaz Sharif, the PITB was com­mit­ted to change ‘Thana Cul­ture’ in Pun­jab by us­ing mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. He was ad­dress­ing a meet­ing held at Arfa Soft­ware Tech­nol­ogy Park on Mon­day. He said “Dur­ing last one year we have de­vel­oped a se­ries of tech sys­tems to track both crime and crim­i­nals but fa­cil­i­tate po­lice and the pub­lic. As a base­line, all 26 Reg­is­ters main­tained in a po­lice sta­tion have been dig­i­tized, in­clud­ing FIR Reg­is­ter-1, Reg­is­ter-2 (Roz­nam­cha) and Reg­is­ter-10 (Sur­veil­lance Reg­is­ter) in 228 po­lice sta­tions of Pun­jab whereas 160,000 FIRs have so far been reg­is­tered dig­i­tally. As the higher au­thor­i­ties of po­lice are very en­cour­ag­ing, I hope this sys­tem will be rolled out across the prov­ince in next few months.”
