Patnaik inaugurates digitisation of 'malkhanas' in remaining 10 districts
New Delhi: Amulya Patnaik, Commissioner of Police (CP), Delhi, on Friday inaugurated the project for digitization of malkhanas in remaining 10 districts of Delhi Police, at Chinamaya Mission on Lodhi Road. With this, Delhi Police is now the first police force in the country with digitization of all 'malkhanas' of all police stations of its districts.
DCP (New Delhi) Madhur Verma stated that a short film showing how this feat was accomplished within such a short span was also shown on the occasion. Sandeep Goel Special CP (Law and Order)(North), provided a brief insight into the working and benefits of e-malkhanas and how the system functions. He said digitization of case properties would give a boost to prosecution and judicial system owing to the ease in maintenance, location & retrieval of case properties and recording their movements as well. Around 3.11 lakh case properties across all police stations of Delhi have been encrypted in digital form.
Speaking on the occasion, the CP underlined that as malkhana is integral to police functioning, so their digitization is a very important feat. He also complimented the personnel involved for going beyond the call of normal duties, to establish a system which would help generations to come. He said digitization of service delivery mechanism will definitely make the whole system faster, smoother and easier. He acknowledged that though digitization on such a large scale was a herculean task, the senior police officers led from the front and kept their personnel motivated to achieve this goal.
Patnaik commended the efforts of personnel instrumental in the project and presented Certificate of Merit to 14 personnel (one from each District), for their outstanding efforts for this achievement in their respective districts.
