Kolkata: Kolkata Police has taken a step ahead by developing a system to make post-mortem reports available online to the next of kin of victims.
One just needs to log in to the website pmr.kolkatapolice.org to avail the service, key in the required information including the number that is provided by the authorities during post-mortem, the date of the post-mortem and a registered mobile number, to receive an OTP (one-time password). Guidelines on the steps to download the report will be sent to the phone.
This makes the process of getting a post-mortem report simple, quick, hassle-free and transparent. However, the manual process of applying for a post-mortem report will also continue for some time.
It may be mentioned that this comes at a time when Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is also the Home Minister, is stressing upon e-governance. She has directed all State Government departments to take necessary measures in this connection.
