Ashwini Narula, founder, Hamari Suraksha.

The verification drive launched by you was earlier supported by the police, but not anymore. Why?
We are continuing with our efforts to register servants and others. The police and we have an association. Recently, DCP (traffic) got 2,000 auto-drivers registered through us. So far, we have registered about one lakh people in Gurgaon.

It is said that credentials registered by you are not verified. Is it true?
We register people, not verify them. It is the job of the police to verify their credentials. We have our database which is present online to maintain the identity of individuals such as domestic helps, security guards, drivers, maids and tenants.

Do you think your drive has made any difference in the city?
Hamari Suraksha is a portal which comes handy in maintaining profiles of individuals. It also allows employers to maintain individuals’ photos, identity documents, references, current and permanent addresses and fingerprints. The data collected is also shared with the police so that if anything goes wrong, the person can be identified through us.

Why do you charge money?
We charge a nominal fee of Rs 125 for online registration. It includes taking photos and fingerprints.
