At various levels of commanding officers, they will have the authority to check the status of application and can also forward to the concerned and simultaneously receive it back. In this portal one application, if submitted at different offices, can be filtered so as to save the time of citizens, and of the department. He hoped that this would be a smart portal which will benefit a large number of people in resolving their issues qualitatively and quantitatively.
The DGP also congratulated ADGP Armed J&K whose suggested slogan “Awaam se, Awaam Ke Liye” was selected among a huge number of suggestions received. He also congratulated DySP IT PHQ, Junaid Hakeem and Director IT, NIC Baijul Ubbott for preparing the portal.

From the complainant’s perspective the portal will provide SMS and email confirmation to applicant /complainant, round the clock availability of the portal, and the complainant can track the status of the complaint by providing a unique complaint number (generated at the time of filing complaint) with registered mobile number.

From the department’s perspective the entire process will be electronic, right up to the point of filing response, complaints received will be instantly assigned to the concerned and the officer will also receive SMS and email alerts. The supervisory officers can monitor the follow up and it will be visible to all senior officers.
