The twin online initiatives of Delhi Police have seen phenomenal success so far, with more than 5,50,000 people having used the 'Delhi Police Lost Report' App in the past eight months and nearly 8,000 Police Clearance Certificates issued so far through an online portal.

Buoyed by the success, the Delhi Police authority is soon going to launch an App through which people can file an FIR regarding theft of motor vehicles.

"Since its launch, more than 5,50,000 people have used the lost report app to report loss of their articles. This means that so many people were saved from the trouble of physically going to the police station.

They reported the matter to us via their phones and they were provided a digitally signed receipt on their email ids," said Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi.

The App was launched on February 28 this year. Through this App, people can report loss of anything like a mobile phone or documents like passport or they could also log on to the Delhi Police's website to report things lost in Delhi.

Talking about the Police Clearance Certificates (PCC) web application which was launched in August 8 this year, Bassi informed that till today 9,178 applications have been received by the police, from which 7,813 PCC have been issued.

"No application took more than seven days to be processed. 661 applications were rejected. The interesting thing is that we thought only young people will use this App but we have seen even senior citizens of 70-75 years of age using this App to get a PCC," he said.

An individual or a company can apply for Police Clearance Certificate by going on the Delhi Police website and getting the certificate within seven working days. Applicants can also approach Delhi Police on 011-23236040 on all working days from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm in case of any difficulty in accessing the service.
