In view of the upcoming Commonwealth Games, Delhi’s neighbouring towns too have started strengthening their security measures.

The Faridabad administration has tightened its noose around cyber-café, PCO and taxi owners who do not keep records of their customers.

“The police commissioner of Faridabad informed me that most of the cyber-café and PCO owners in Faridabad were not keeping records of their customers,” Deputy Commissioner, Faridabad, Praveen Kumar told Hindustan Times.

“I took the matter seriously and ordered that owners of cyber-cafes and PCOs have to keep records of the customers with every possible details such as name, address, contact numbers, signatures etc,” he added.

Kumar said under Section 144, keeping such information has been made mandatory for owners of cyber-cafes and PCOs in the entire district.

“Action will be initiated if the order is not complied with immediate effect. The order has come into force since July 21,” he added.

In another order, the administration has made it mandatory for house owners to get the antecedents of their tenants verified.
