How to Register Online FIR

The information or complaint filed with the police in relation to a criminal incident is called an FIR. The full form of FIR is “First Information Report“. FIR ie First Information Report is a written document which is prepared by the police of countries including India on receipt of a cognizable offense. This information is filed as a complaint to the police by the victim of the incident. The FIR is a document prepared by the police in which information about the crime is written.

Let me tell you that it is mandatory for the police to have an FIR before starting any investigation. The procedure of FIR under Section 154 of the Code of Criminal Procedure 1973 is carried out. The FIR is a very important Informative Document on the basis of which the police pursue legal proceedings. Any person can register an FIR with the police in the event of a cognizable offense. And now you can also register online FIR sitting at home.

What is ZERO FIR?

It is always kept in mind that you have to register the FIR in the police station where the incident happens. And if you go to another police station to register a complaint, then the police do not register a complaint in such a situation. For example, if the incident happens in area A then you have to register the complaint in the police station of A, not in other police station.  But many times the victim of the incident is in a strange situation, and they have to register a complaint in other police station. But remember that FIR is your right. In such a situation, the government has made a provision of ZERO FIR keeping in mind your convenience. Under which you can register an FIR in any police station. And later he can be transferred to the police station near the spot.

The FIR can be registered by any person with whom a criminal incident has taken place. Let me tell you that FIR is your right. If there is a crash with you, or if some of your items have been stolen, you can file an FIR. Apart from this, every person can register an FIR who has witnessed a serious incident happening himself. Or even after knowing about a crime, a person can register an FIR.

Why are FIRs registered?

The first step is to give information about any crime to the police and start acting on it. On filing an FIR, police start Investigation of crime. So that criminals can be punished. If a criminal incident happens to someone, the police will investigate the incident only when the FIR has been lodged by the victim of the incident. If any of your valuables are stolen, you can get an FIR registered and get them investigated by the police. Apart from this, some items are stolen like mobile, SIM card, documents, etc. So in such a situation, some kind of misuse can also be done to your object. In order to avoid any problem with this in the future, you must get an FIR registered for your security.

What type of crime is FIR done?

An FIR can be registered on every type of criminal incident. The police register an FIR first and immediately for such offenses, which at first sight fall under the category of cognizable offenses. And the police of such cognizable offenses can also be arrested without a warrant. Some examples of such crimes are murder, rape, theft, murderous assault, etc.

When can I register an FIR?

It is necessary to register an FIR immediately after the incident. But if for some reason we are not able to register an FIR immediately, then it is necessary to get the FIR registered in the shortest possible time. And if there are delays, then in such a situation you must also give sufficient clarification. Therefore, try to get the FIR registered immediately after the incident.

In which condition can I register online FIR?

Filing an FIR is the right of every citizen of India. If any type of criminal incident happens, the person can go to the police station and register an FIR. But some conditions have been kept for filing FIRs online. For example, a mobile phone is stolen, the wallet is stolen, a motorcycle is stolen, a car is stolen, documents like Aadhaar card, PAN card, passport, etc. are stolen, etc. If we understand in simple words, then we cannot register an FIR online for a cognizable offense.
