Tenant Screening Begins To Weed Out Anti-Socials
Anti-social elements attempting to take refuge in Tirupur will now have a tough time hiding from the police, thanks to a tenant information system being put in place by the city police. Police officials have managed to gather data pertaining to 12,000 tenants to date. The database, second of its kind after Chennai, will have mobile numbers, family details, previous address, work details and an identity proof of the tenant. The tenant information system would also include a photocopy of the tenant's driving license, ration card or voter ID card, passport, PAN card or Aadhaar card. The idea of a tenant information system was mooted after frequent incidents of anti-social elements finding a safe haven in Tirupur. Police commissioner S N Seshasai, who initiated the process, said he didn 't want to force the public to hasten the preparation of the database.
