Till yesterday, Yogesh Ramchandra Kuite, a resident of Baglan taluka, was running from pillar to post to get a character certificate to apply for a job as a security guard. His dream can be achieved faster now as the city police launched an online application portal for these certificates on Tuesday.

The portal will not only be convenient for applicants, but it will also bring in transparency. "People can now apply online and be assured to get the process done in time so that they do not have to visit the police station repeatedly," an official said.

The option has been included on the police clearance services (PCS) and was formally inaugurated on Tuesday by district guardian minister Girish Mahajan at Adgaon, Nashik rural headquarters.


The verification process is now in demand as it has been made mandatory for most organisations to consider the certificate while employing personnel - even when it comes to appointing security guards on temporary basis.

Usually, the people from rural areas would travel to Nashik rural headquarters only to submit their papers, which would then be sent to the local police station. The papers would - after having finished the verification process, travel back to the headquarters and then the person would be called for taking it.

"The process has been cut short, by not letting an applicant make any unnecessary trips to the office. The applicant will have to create an id, log in and submit their requests and documents for substantiating their claims," an officer from the department said.

The department will electronically process the certificate, forward it to the local police station and obtain the report on the verification. "The process will include no physical movement of papers or people. Within a certain time frame the beneficiary will be given the certificates back home," the official added.
