Individuals and companies/institutions could get self verification, job verification, tenant verification and domestic help verification reports by visiting the Tamil Nadu police website www.eservices.tnpolice.gov.in with necessary documents, he said.
The applicants should send consent letters of the persons to be verified along with other documents to get the PVR, he said.

The applicants could make the payments through credit cards, debit cards and net banking, he said. They could download the PVR in 15 days after submitting the applications, he said adding, they could also get a copy of the PVR by email.
Explaining the process, the SP said the moderator on receipt of an application, would scrutinise it and forward the same to the concerned police station, after which, the intelligence service staff would conduct field verification. Later, the criminal antecedents of the person to be verified would be checked in police records in the police stations and through ‘accused name search’ query on CCTNS website, he said.
“An All India search for verifying criminal antecedents would also be done through digital police option on CCTNS officers’ portal,” he added. Applicants could check the genuineness of the PVR by scanning the QR code given in the report or through the ‘verify’ option in the website, the SP said.
