Delhi Police puts all FIRs online

Following a High Court order dated December 6, 2010, Delhi Police has begun to upload all FIRs online, where they can be looked up by anyone who knows the FIR number or the even if the person has only partial information about the FIR.

This new service is a powerful step forward in digitising the archives of government bodies and not only should this lead to more transparency and ease of use, but will also be highly relevant to people who are doing research and to journalists reporting on crime.

The service is already live and all FIRs registered at various police stations, except those categorised as ‘Sensitive’ by the concerned Additional CP or DCP District, are being uploaded within 24 hours after a court ruling on the matter of the court’s own motion versus the State, regarding the supply of copy of FIR to accused persons and uploading of FIRs on the Delhi Police website.

To look up the FIR, all one has to do is visit and then click on FIR view. To view the FIR, one can either enter the police station, year and FIR number, or if not aware of the FIR number, then one can enter just the police station and year and then enter a date range or the name of any of the accused, complainant or victim and pull up a record of all matching FIRs. This process and system should help anyone who wants to, for example, study police records in a certain area in a certain time frame.
