NEW DELHI :
Making it easy for Delhiites to file an online FIR (e-FIR) or pay traffic challans easily from their mobile phones, the Delhi Police has released a new app called ‘Tatpar’.
Launched by Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, the app is a one-stop destination for access to over 50 citizen-centric services like theft e-FIR registration, motor vehicle theft e-FIR registration, payment of traffic filing a lost report, checking complaint status, reporting of missing or stolen mobile phones, applying for police clearance certificates, tenant/domestic help verification, searching for stolen vehicles, etc.
The app also helps you to locate your nearest police station and call helpline various numbers. “Delhi Police has started 50 public services on the digital platform. All these have been integrated in the Tatpar app,” Delhi Police spokesperson Anil Mittal said.
Designed by the IT ministry along with the National e-Governance Division, the app amalgamates all the websites and mobile applications of Delhi Police.
According to police, over the last three years various units of Delhi Police developed web and mobile-based applications to facilitate delivery of citizen-centric services.
These applications, however, were required to be installed separately by the intending user, and further, in order to access the web-based service delivery portals, the correct URL was required to be remembered.
Another highlight of the app is the SOS button which is provided on the home screen. It enables the user to place a call on an emergency contact number (SOS) of their choice or reach out to the Police Control Room (PCR) at 100 with a single touch, the police said.
The android version of Tatpar app is ready for launch and the iOS and bilingual versions of the same are under development and will be released for public use in the near future.
