Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday launched three transformational projects of the State police under its 5T initiative aimed at reducing human interface with the Government offices.
The three projects are Virtual Police Station, Road Accident Case Documents Module and Medico Legal Opinion System.
“My Government is committed to provide citizen-centric governance under the 5T initiative. The projects launched today will effectively reduce the necessity of citizens to visit police stations,” said the Chief Minister.
The Virtual Police Station is an online mechanism established at the State Crime Records Bureau in Bhubaneswar. It will facilitate online registration of FIR in unknown motor vehicle theft cases. If a case remains undetected for 21 days, final form would be auto generated at CCTNS. It would also benefit citizens for claiming insurance in motor vehicle theft cases. A citizen can also file FIR through Citizens Portal or Sahayata Mobile App.
The Road Accident Case Documents Module is a web-based application which can be accessed by visiting the site www.imsop.odisha.gov.in. It will help insurance companies or the victims in downloading the required documents like FIR, final form, spot map, MVI report, inquest, post-mortem report, driving license, registration certificate or any other document as required. It will do away the role of middlemen and expedite the process of insurance claims. Insurance companies can approach Crime Records Bureau for creation of user IDs and passwords to access the site. Complainants can access the site by filling up requisite details and OTP sent to mobile number mentioned in FIR.
The Medico Legal Opinion System ia also a web-based system helpful to both the police and medical professionals. The police can submit requisitions online for medical examination of victims. Doctors will upload their medical examination reports online which will be down-loaded by police for necessary action. This will ensure transparency and fix accountability in case of any undue delay in getting medical examination reports. It will also help in reducing extraneous considerations or interference while giving medical opinion in sensitive cases. Timely receipt of medical examination reports will help victims in getting compensation in time.
Minister of State for Home Dibya Sankar Mishra said there is a visible transformation marked in the behaviour towards women and children at police stations. DGP Abhaya outlined the details of the three initiatives.
5T Secretary VK Pandian said the Government is receiving good feedback on police activities in the districts. He also expressed happiness over removal of middlemen from institutions like hospitals and RTOs. He also appreciated the police department for taking huge steps for solving industrial disputes. He interacted with the SPs of some districts to get an idea about the understanding of the officials on three transformational projects.
