Non-registration of FIRs: Delhi public panel expresses concern
Delhi Government’s Public Grievances Commission has expressed concern over ‘high level’ of public dissatisfaction over non-registration of FIRs by Delhi police and ‘poor response’ in matters relating to non-cognisable offences.

In its 11th annual report for the year 2008-09, the commission also suggested that the response to complaints should be promptly attended in case of cognisable offences.

‘FIRs must be registered and copies should be made available to the complainant. Quarterly and annual reviews should be conducted by DCsP and Joint CP. The commission also made suggestions for maintaining preventive vigilance,’ the report said.

It also expressed concern over ‘high level of public dissatisfaction on non-registration of FIRs’ and rising number of instances involving inaction.

In its response, the Delhi Police informed the PGC that FIRs are registered without any delay, however, sometimes in complicated matters preliminary inquiry needed to avoid false implication of innocents. The commission also suggested several measures to deputy commissioners of various districts with regard to several incidents.
