Purpose of Pehchaan is to facilitate public to search or find the criminal record or background of any person they are dealing with e.g. employee verification, marriage or business dealing etc.
Punjab Police and PSCA have launched this application to provide public an easy access to the criminal background record of any person through CNIC. It will help you verify background of a person by checking if an FIR has been registered against them. People can find/search/check the criminal background of a person through CNIC only.
After installing this application, you will have to signup first to check the criminal record of a person.
The results provided in Pehchaan app are based initially on CNIC of Punjab Province. However, the background records being provided are only to the extent of CNIC. It is possible that record of a particular individual may exist without CNIC for which Punjab Safe Cities Authority and Punjab police takes no responsibility or legal obligation what’s so ever. It is further recommended that counter verification should be done from the concerned Police station. This facility is only to the extent of initial information regarding criminal record of an individual which could not be claimed or consider any legal value for any purpose.
