After launching the doorstep FIR service, the Commissionerate Police has now come up with a daily 100 for seeking permission with regard to marriage and funeral. With the explosion of COVID-19 cases in the capital city and subsequent enforcement of 14-day lockdown, Bhubaneswar Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) has urged the residents to get permission for marriages and funerals through phone calls.
Bhubaneswar residents can now obtain necessary permission for marriage and funeral by dialing 100. If not they can also call 8144207100 and take permission.
Informing about the new facility, Bhubaneswar DCP, Umashankar Dash said that the usual format of knocking on doors of the DCP office for permission has been temporarily stopped.
He has urged the residents to dial 100 or call on the mobile number /8144207100 of the licensing cell. The cell will provide the applicant a softcopy of the format.
The applicant has to fill that up and send it through WhatsApp following which a license will be sent to them again through WhatsApp.
The applicant can either take a printout or keep the softcopy of the license to produce it when sought by the authorities.
