The digitization of all the case properties, their bar-coding, packaging in boxes, arrangement in order in proper shelves, sheds marks will lead to achievement of the objective of "Smart Policing and Swachh Bharat" mission.
West District has become the fourth district of Delhi to achieve complete digitization of Malkhans in all its 12 police stations.

Proper arranging of case properties has led to cleaning and clearing of police station premises, thereby creating more space and making the area presentable, people-friendly and welcoming.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Monika Bharadwaj stated that the audience was also shown a short film on concept and implementation of e-Malkhana system. The police commissioner released a handbook on awareness of staff deployed at Malkhanas.

After digitization, it would be easy to retrieve the case property and would also save valuable time and energy. Synchronization of functioning of Malkhanas in all the 12 police stations of West District was a big challenge.
