Saanjh App launched by police in city

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, April 14

To make the services of the Punjab Police easily available to the masses, the police chief has launched the “Saanjh App” to curb the complaints of taking money from the public in the police stations and to make the work easier.

The app, which is third in the series of the Saanjh initiative, would make all police-related actions easy. The chief admin of the Saanjh Apps, Pritpal Singh, said, “The general public can also record theft and other complaints on this app and apart from this, information regarding vehicle untraced copy, verification, police clearance, NOC, status of the complaint, passport status, information of theft vehicle, information of missing people and details of unclaimed vehicle could be given on the mobile.”

At the same time, people will be able to print a copy of their registered application so that they don’t have to ask for it in the police station. Moreover, the status of the complaint could also be traced.

Briefing about the app developed by the community policing wing, Pritpal told The Tribune that for the effective delivery of public services, minimal interaction between the system and the residents is required that would further minimise the corruption rates. Also, the existing web portal didn’t receive much penetration so the app was needed so that a handy operating system would be available with the people.

The app, along with registering complaints, would also save the data automatically, hence every complaint would be heard unlike the offline system. In addition, if any resident has come out of his house to go anywhere in the city and finds himself in any difficulty on his way, with the help of the “Punjab Police Saanjh app”, the name and number of the area in charge Commissioner of Police (CP), Superintendent of Police (SP) and the DSP would be available. Also, if someone wants to go to the police station, he can reach there using the GPS of the app.

The area server head said that once anything had entered in the system, it would be monitored and addressed regularly and people would feel the difference once they used it.
