online FIR

This article is written by Ruchi Jain, a student of MATS Law School, Raipur, on how to file online FIR and criminal complaints.

Introduction to FIR

The two important things, which you need to do before initiating any criminal proceeding is to either file a complaint or first information report. Complaint simply means an allegation against any person that he has committed an offence to be made in front of the magistrate, either orally or in writing but it does not include a police report. First Information Report or FIR is the report prepared by the police officer in furtherance of receiving information relating to the commission of a cognizable offence.

Complaint is generally made by the person against whom the offence has been committed. FIR can be lodged by the person against whom the offence is committed, by the person who knows that the offence has committed, or by the person who has seen the commission of an offence.

The procedure for filing FIR has been given under Section 154 of Criminal Procedure Code, 1973. But what is not given under any law or code is the procedure for filing online complaint and FIR, this article will discuss the procedures for filing an online FIR / complaint.
