Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday inaugurated a state police-citizen portal, enabling tech-savvy people to send their complaints online to the authorities.
"Through the portal, a citizen sitting at home can avail a number of services at a click of the mouse. There is no need to go to any police station," the chief minister said.
All the 531 police stations in the state have been linked through the online portal www.citizenportal-op.gov.in.
The services which can be availed through the portal are issue of character certificates, permission for taking out processions and rallies, issue of an FIR copy, permission for holding events and performances, tenant verification, employee verification and registration of missing person's report, said the chief minister.
People can also track the status of the complaints registered by them on the portal, he added.
He said the quick delivery system would benefit the society at large, enhance the image of police, and help them in establishing an effective and efficient communication with the citizens.
