DIPR IMPHAL, 1st Feb: 
With the objective to enhance transparency and efficiency of the government, chief minister N Biren launched the official websites of Chief Minister’s Office and Manipur Police Citizen Portal. The launch function of the two websites and was held at the CM’s office on Thursday.

During the function, the chief minister said that the primary objective of the present government is to simplify the way of life of the people. The website would act as an interface for state citizens living outside the state as well as an interface to the grievance cell. Citizens will also get access to the latest news and important events related to Chief Minister’s Office, he informed.

He explained that one of the key features of the website is “Manipur Connect” where citizens including students residing outside the state can register themselves and raise issues and concerns related to education, racism, harassment and corruption.

“The state government would provide the registered list of our citizens so that government could officially request each and every state government to protect and provide security to our citizens round the clock,” he added.

Registered students would get some benefits such as financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh and Rs 50,000 in case of death and serious injury respectively. Another feature of the website is the ability to link with the newly launched “Grievance Cell” which will provide one step solution for citizens to lodge their grievances to various departments, after which they can monitor the status or progress of their complaints.

Speaking about the Manipur Police Citizen Portal, Biren said that the objective of the website is to establish a cordial relationship and to bridge the communication gap between public and police in the state. An individual can lodge any complaint through the website without their physical presence in the police station. He further clarified that anonymity of the complainant would be upheld under any circumstances.

The aim of the portal is to make the functioning of police people friendly, improving delivery of citizen centric services through effective usage of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and more transparency by automating the functioning of police stations.

The portal is a part of the CCTNS project, a mission mode project governed by Ministry of Home Affairs.

Some of the features of the website are complaints and request for verification, and request for no-objection certificates can be generated and those requests will automatically get forwarded to the respective police stations. The status of the complaints will also be automatically updated. Useful information like missing person’s details, unidentified dead bodies will also be made available in the portal. Public can give any suggestions/tips regarding various issues through the website.

MLAs K Robindro, L Susindro, L Rameshwor, H Dingo and Th Satyabrata, chief secretary RR Rashmi, DGP LM Khaute, top civil and police officials attended the function.
