With the new application, ‘Tenant Verification System’, the landlords will not have to go to the police station for providing the information. It will also save workload and manpower of police, facilitate tenant verification fast and with ease and also have the data in digitized form and accessible. The application is available on Google Playstore.
Commissioner of police Ravinder Kumar Singal said, “We hope more people will now come forward to provide tenant information. Earlier, either the police were going to the landlords or the landlords were coming to the police station. Yet the tenant information was not on expected lines. We believe the mobile application will get a good response as citizens can provide the information from their homes.”
“Some tenants are of criminal background. Thus it is necessary that police know about them. With the new system, the information of the tenant can be verified by police. If the tenant has a criminal background, action can be taken against him,” he added.
Kovid Sawla, director of Adivid Technologies Pvt Ltd, which has developed the application, said property owners and agents can directly fill all the details of tenants, owner and property, along with agent detail, if applicable, online. The applicant will receive a token number using which he/she can check the status of the application which will be updated by police.”
A large number of people rent out their properties without giving information about the tenants to police. Senior police officials said they have been appealing to people to provide the information. Police have also booked a few landlords for not providing tenant information.
