How to File an e-FIR or Police Complaint to the Madhya Pradesh Police?

The Madhya Pradesh Police has an integrated Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS) for citizens to report incidents or access police services. Citizens in Madhya Pradesh can register police complaints or file online e-FIRs (noncriminal) cases (for unknown accused) or NonSR (Serious Reports).

Difference between a Police Complaint and an FIR:

1. Police Complaint: This can be either oral or written, accusing someone of an offence or reporting an incident. It is applicable for both cognizable and non-cognizable crimes without any specific complaint format.

2. FIR (First Information Report): Initial information, submitted orally or in a written format on plain paper, about cognizable offences (civil/criminal) to the police station.

  • The FIR must be registered with the officer in charge or SHO of the Police Station for a police investigation.
  • The magistrate may take action based on the FIR.

Citizens need to be aware of their rights and protect against misconduct such as corruption or harassment by police officials. These rights are defined in the “citizen charter” of the Madhya Pradesh Police.

Grievance Redressal Mechanism

Adhering to the regulations defined by the Home Department, the grievance redressal mechanism of the Madhya Pradesh Police is divided into a three-tiered format. Initially, register a concern at the local police station. Further, escalate the grievances to be brought to the attention of higher authorities.
