SMS facility for Passport and Service Verification for Criminal Investigation Department, Jammu and Kashmir Police was inaugurated by Sh. A.G. Mir, IPS, Additional Director General of Police(ADGP), CID, J&K on 26/05/2018.
Verification wing of CID Headquarters caters to the verification of antecedents of Passport applicants, LOC-POK visitors, Government/Semi-Government/PSU’s newly recruited employees, persons who are opening new NGO/Trust/School etc. but the wing was devoid of a system wherein the applicants could ascertain the day to day status of their verification process.
To facilitate the general public across the State, CID Headquarters J&K requested NIC, J&K for development of application software that will enable all applicants to track the status of their verification through SMS facility. Accordingly, NIC designed and developed an application Software for CID-VMIS (Verification Management and Information System), wherein the applicants get updates about their verification through SMS.The main modules of the application are:-
- SMS Service for Passport Verification.
- SMS Service for Service Verification.
- SMS Service for Allied Verification.
- Group SMS [Within CID Hqrs].
- Individual SMS [Within CID Hqrs].
CID Headquarters carried out 1,36,289 Passport Verification, 18,057 Service Verifications, 302 Trust/NGO/School verifications having 1,811 applicants for the years 2017 but there was no such system in place to know the status of verifications by the applicants.
ADGP, CID, J&K appreciated the efforts put in by NIC Project Team led by Shri Navneet Kukreja, DDG & SIO J&K, comprising of Jit Raj, STD & ASIO(D), Suresh Kumar, TD, Sudhir Sharma, TD and Parvinder Singh Scientist for providing SMS based eGovernance solution to the department.
