The Delhi Police said Friday it has digitised all malkhanas across 11 police stations in Rohini district under the e-Malkhana project.
Malkhana is a room for keeping seized arms and ammunition.
Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik launched the e-Malkhana project of Rohini District at the KN Katju Marg police station, police said.
Rohini district has become the third district after South East and Shahdara to achieve complete digitisation of malkhanas in all its 11 police stations, they said.
"Maintenance of malkhana has always been a priority to keep the case property in safe custody and its retrieval for presenting before the court and keeping it back safely. After digitisation, it would be easy to retrieve the case property and it would also save valuable time and energy," Delhi police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik said.
The project will pave the way for the handling of case properties in a more professional manner.
Patnaik also released a training manual hand-book on awareness of staff deployed in malkhanas. The digitisation of all the case properties, their bar-coding, packaging in boxes, arrangement in order in proper shelves/sheds marks a leap for Delhi Police towards the achievement of the objective of Smart policing, they said.
