Trichy: Trichy city police and rural police launched the online Police Verification Services (PVS) on Wednesday which will enable individuals and institutions to avoid visiting the police station to apply for police verification report (PVR).
Launching the service, Trichy city police commissioner A Amalraj said, “The system will be convenient for anyone as it involves simple procedures of uploading the basic information.” In rural Trichy, superintendent of police (SP) Zia Ul Haq launched the service.
The objective of PVS, which comes into effect statewide, is to verify the identity of the person, his/her address and check if he or she is involved in any criminal case as per the records available with Tamil Nadu police.
The service could be utilized for self-verification, job verification, tenant verification and domestic help verification through www.eservices.tnpolice.gov.in.
The fee for the verification for individuals and institutions per application would be Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 respectively.
Police said that criminal records from 1980 had been already uploaded on Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS). It would enable the police to trace the track record of anyone in any police station limit in the state.
However, the address and criminal records of a resident of another state cannot be verified in the system.
The self-verification service will enable job-seekers to get a PVR from the police and submit them with their application for any job. The applicants can download the report from the website itself within 15 days.
A copy of the PVR will also be sent to the registered email ID of the applicant. The genuineness of the PVR can be verified by scanning the QR code given on it and also through the ‘verify’ option available on the website.
