The portal, offering a host of services like tenant or staff verification and issue of character certificate, has been designed and developed under the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network & Systems (CCTNS) project.
The e-services will be available to citizens having internet connections, enabling them to avail the services without having to go to police stations,” said S Sinha of HCL Technology, while briefing media-persons about the portal.
