The Noida district administration has made verification of security guards, servants and tenants mandatory to keep a check on anti social elements gaining entry into the city.
"Cyber cafes, too, have been asked to keep identity proofs and contact numbers of surfers," Superintendent of Police A.K. Tripathi said.
Tripathi said District magistrate Deepak Aggarwal has issued orders to this effect.
The move, Tripathi said, will help in tracking down antisocial elements.
Violators will face action under section 188 of the Indian penal Code, which means one to six months in jail, Tripathi said.
Noida Security Association president N.P. Singh said all agencies recruiting guards had been asked to get themselves registered under the Security Act.
"They have been told to employ security guards only after police verification. Security agencies that violate rules will be deregistered," Singh said.
Suresh Tiwari, general secretary of the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association, said: "All residents have been requested to get their servants verified by the police.”
Landlords have also been told to give details about tenants to the police, Tiwari said.
