Cops Set To Mine Reg­is­tra­tion Data For Ver­i­fi­ca­tion

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY - @times­

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? LEARN HOW TO DO IT

Reg­is­tra­tion de­part­ment can share e-data with the po­lice So, cit­i­zens need not visit both the de­part­ments E-shar­ing can help more peo­ple reg­is­ter as cit­i­zens San­jeev Ku­mar Sing­hal, ad­di­tional di­rec­tor gen­eral, state crime records bureau.

Sing­hal said that once they re­ceive the data from the reg­is­tra­tion de­part­ment, they would di­rect peo­ple not to visit po­lice sta­tions for the ver­i­fi­ca­tion process. “This fa­cil­ity is for those ten­ants who do e-reg­is­tra­tion. Those who sub­mit doc­u­ments man­u­ally to the reg­is­tra­tion de­part­ment for leave and li­cence agree­ment will still have to come to us,” he told TOIon Satur­day.

Mean­while, the state reg­is­tra­tion de­part­ment and po­lice are keen on mak­ing it com­pul­sory for ten­ants to e-reg­is­ter. Reg­is­tra­tion of­fi­cials said the move is aimed at weed out mid­dle­men.

The of­fice of the In­spec­tor Gen­eral of Reg­is­tra­tion and Con­troller of Stamps (IGR) had usu­ally shy away from po­lice ver­i­fi­ca­tion process Mid­dle­men mak­ing money dur­ing manual ver­i­fi­ca­tion process can be avoided. Also , load at reg­is­trar of­fices will drop sub­mit­ted a pro­posal to the home de­part­ment ear­lier this year, which was aimed at ex­empt­ing ten­ants from manda­tory po­lice ver­i­fi­ca­tion, while sim­pli­fy­ing reg­is­tra­tion process and giv­ing po­lice in­stant ac­cess to the data.

IGR of­fi­cials felt that cit­i­zens will feel en­cour­aged to opt for ereg­is­tra­tion if they are ex­empted from po­lice ver­i­fi­ca­tion. There are more than 500 au­tho­rized ser­vice providers in the state who, for a fixed fee, can reg­is­ter the doc­u­ments and ex­e­cute the leave and li­cence agree­ments at home. All peo­ple need to have is a we­b­cam, a fin­ger­print scan­ner and In­ter­net. “The ser­vices are avail­able, pro­vided the po­lice ver­i­fi­ca­tion is done si­mul­ta­ne­ously. In­di­vid­u­als have to pro­vide Aad­haar and PAN de­tails,’’ said an of­fi­cial.
