BRITONA: Porvorim Police has arrested five persons during tenant verification drive at Haliwada, Britona for not possessing identity proof.
Police have informed that the verification drive will continue in other areas within their jurisdiction.
Tenant verification by police involves a background check which red flags any applicants with prior charges, rapsheet and sounds you off.
If you live out of state or abroad, police verification for tenants is a necessary measure to ensure safety concerns you may have since you’d have no eyes and ears on the ground.
Indian Penal Code’s Section 188 states that failure to conduct police verification of tenants may lead to imprisonment of one month and a penalty of Rs 200.
