Police in the eastern Indian state of Bihar will soon introduce paper less operations in its police stations across the state. The state police is introducing a software named CIPA (Crime Investigation Police Application) which will allow registration of First Information Reports (FIRs) through the Internet.

The National Informatics Centre (NIC) has developed the new software which will help the policemen deputed at the police station to register cases through email and send the same to the higher officials of the Bihar Police.


The high-tech initiative will be backed by the training of 4,000 cops from constable to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in the first phase. The Bihar Institute of Public Administration and Rural Development (BIPARD) will take up the task of training the policemen. It has been said that the entire training will take about a years time.

e-Governance in-charge of BIPARD, Sanjay Pandey said, “This is a big challenge for us to train the cops. We have to make them know how to open files and make entry of data but we hope to overcome this problem soon.”

Speaking on the venture, Additional Director General (Law and Order) Anil Sinha said the state government has already provided computers to important police stations of the state. However, most of the policemen do not know how to use the computers.
