Available for free download from Google Play Store and Apple iStore, “Lost Report” is the latest feature added to this app.

The mobile/web app for e-registration FIR for motor vehicle theft is the first of its kind being initiated by the Delhi Police. The app allows for e-registration FIR in the event of motor vehicle thefts while ‘Untracted Report’ is accepted by the relevant court. This kind of app has been a long time in development with major challenges being faced to sync systems with High Court’s e-committee and District Courts.

Having now finally reached launch stage, it is hoped that recovery of stolen vehicles will be quicker and more effective. Recovery of stolen vehicles will require matching of details with centralized data bases while cases will be disposed off faster thus leading to less pendency at both police stations and at courts.
