The Indian Police unit in a small district, Firozabad, situated a few kilometers away from the famous Taj Mahal, launched a blockchain-based complaint portal on Polygon. Blockchain, a disruptive technology, is gradually setting a foothold in different sectors due to its transparency and high-end security. Developing countries like India often face issues like complaints being ignored by police stations and also tampering with case files. The decision comes as a solution to effectively maintaining jurisdictions while lodging complaints.
Indian police resorts to blockchain for curbing injustice
Firozabad, with a population of 2.4 million, often undergo challenging situations when visiting police stations. The police officials sometimes refuse to file one, or their complaint records get lost due to political conspiracies. According to the senior superintendent of police at the district, Ashish Tiwari, complaint registration on blockchain will ensure data is not misplaced and remains transparent.
The complaint portal uses the OxPolygon module to ensure the effective working of the blockchain-based complaint system. Corruption is deeply rooted in the Indian judiciary system, and this initiative is considered a game changer. With its implementation, the people of Firozabad can feel the liberty to register police complaints without the fear of any manipulations.
India fights corruption with blockchain
In India, for a long time, the victims, hoping to get justice, try filing a police complaint, but disappointments intimidate them. To address the rising cases of delay in crime reporting and document tampering, the Indian Police unit in Firozabad aims at eliminating disparities, corruption and unlawful activities with the power of blockchain.
Per reports, 21 police stations in the area will have QR codes scanned at the time of complaint registration. While speaking on the initiative, Polygon CEO feels delighted to be a part of such a noble project. He said that being brought up in India, he understands the relevance of transparency in police complaints.
This step is expected to bring a wave of positive changes in the judiciary system; we hope blockchain is used in countries like India, where corruption rates remain high.
