Gurgaon Police Commissioner S S Deswal launched a digital and online tenants, servants and drivers verification scheme from Sector 23 on Saturday.

A 20-year old domestic maid Malti, from Assam, became the first woman to be registered under the scheme.

She works in a house in Sector 23.

With the failure of several verification drives in the past, the police have finally decided to go door-to-door with digital cameras, scanners and laptops to take photographs and finger prints of persons whose antecedents need to be verified.

Deswal said the people wanting to get the credentials of their tenants, servants and other verified, now need not go to a police station.

“One can apply for verification on the website-”

The data so collected would be handed over to the police who would verify it.

A charge of Rs 50 per application will be recovered initially. In case of a servant, the charges will be paid by the house owner while the tenant will pay the charge himself.

Deswal said all the police stations would be given access to the information. Ashvani Narula of Hamari Suraksha, an NGO helping the police in the drive, said it plans to set up 15 centres in Gurgaon for registration of servants and tenants.

Fifteen floating teams will be deputed for house visits, he added.
